My friend, you have to have eaten non-Rotel queso somewhere within the great state of Texas to understand its greatness.
When served with freshly made and well-salted tortilla chips, queso — in its rainbow of colors, from white to burnt orange (just in time for football season) — is quintessentially Tex-Mex. Slightly sharp and spicy, it's a heartier dip than salsa, but isn't quite a full-fledged appetizer, such as a quesadilla.
Beer or margaritas are also essential to the queso experience. If you ever find yourself in Austin, I'll personally show you why this isn't a food to dismiss.
