Super Bowl weekend is coming up and I’m sure all sports fans are gearing up for a fun game night. I am not a big football fan and don’t follow it too closely. But I’m excited about the half time show and the commercials more than the game itself 🙂

This queso dip made with butternut squash will be a yummy addition to your super bowl party menu. It is secretly healthy with the addition of squash and sports two-thirds less fat than the classic queso (or cheese) dip.

I was skeptical about the taste because I was expecting a very strong squash taste, but I was pleasantly surprised on how creamy and delicious this dip turned out. It doesn’t have the tell tale taste of the squash, I think adding the chipotle chili really helps with its smokiness. Serve with some nacho tortilla chips and veggies for dipping.
