queso – you can either make the recipe provided, or just use a store-bought version. Or you can totally make your own version!

But I will also tell you that making the Queso Cheese Dip that I have included in this recipe, will make all that is wrong with the world, right again.

It’s so perfectly creamy and delicious and is a great dip too!

cheese sauce – if you’d prefer not to use this sauce mentioned above, you could also substitute Velveeta Cheese Dip, Taco Dip or beer cheese dip.

kielbasa – if you’d prefer to skip the kielbasa, you can use brats, hot dogs or any other type of sausage.
