Buffalo Con Queso Dip

From Heirloom Living Market Lilburn

<p>This tasty and hearty dip is a favorite at our farm open house events and for when the kids bring friends over for camp outs &#8212; they go crazy for it! It is versatile and can be used as a topping for eggs or other dishes. My mother-in-law made this &#8220;beef dip&#8221; for her bridge club meetings for many years. We replaced the beef with water buffalo and renamed it. Triple or quadruple the recipe for gatherings or for freezing leftovers.</p>
