If you are from Texas you have probably been using Ro*Tel in everything from meatloaf to Chicken Tortilla Soup for decades. It is one of those things… like Texas Sheet Cake and Frito Pie and Dr. Pepper. It is not what we DO it is part of who we ARE.
Ro*Tel is one of the things that I do keep on hand because I like it and I haven’t found a substitute that I like as well. That, and I have a deep, dark, non-organic secret.
I am addicted to the queso you make with Ro*Tel and Velveeta. I know… I know…But there you have it, we all have our weaknesses. Mine happens to be hot, homemade tortilla chips with a bowl of this creamy goodness next to it… and maybe a Dr. Pepper on the side.
Well, you know that addicts are bound by law to try to share their addiction and I am no exception. You can win a Queso Party Pack for 100 of your nearest and dearest friends, a $50 grocery gift card, FansEdge goodies, AND more for your next tailgating party. You don’t even have to watch the cowboys.
Personally, I have only just gotten interested in football. You see, my fiance is an A & M alumni and apparently they have this tradition (Aggies are big on tradition, I am learning) of a kiss for every score. Once this started my appreciation of football rose at least 900%…and I am so happy to report that the Aggies are having a great season this year.
Ro*Tel is also hosting a Feed Their Game Face Giveaway. By entering there you are registered to win free groceries for a year (think about how much money THAT would save) and a trip to the college football game of your choice. Might I suggest the A & M game…since it is so friendly and all? Just enter your email address and you are good to go.
Come back here and leave a comment that you entered and guess what? You could win the Queso Party Pack, too! Want a bonus shot at winning? Make the Queso and post a picture of it in the Restless Chipotle Facebook Page Fan Photo Album and you will get an extra entry. How cool is that? Here is a link to a coupon for Ro*Tel to get you started. Dang, at this point I have done everything but make it for ya.
