February 24: National Tortilla Chip Day

Happy National Tortilla Chip Day! Today is the day to celebrate the lowly tortilla chip – cheap, delicious, and perfect for keeping customers from charging into every restaurant kitchen to see why their entrees aren’t out yet.

Tonight, I believe I shall celebrate with homemade taco salad. Here’s my favorite dip ever:

Easy Microwave Queso: Melt a package of Velveeta (or similar cheese) in the microwave. (Microwave a few minutes at a time and stir in between so that you don’t burn the edges.) Add salsa (I like medium Pace or a can of Rotel) to taste and add milk until the consistency feels right.

Stick any leftovers in the fridge, add milk and microwave for take 2 (or 3 or 7 or however long it lasts).

Today’s verse comes from Genesis 27:28, when Isaac blessed his second son, Jacob.

“May God give you of heaven’s dew
and of earth’s richness—
an abundance of grain and new wine.”
