BEER QUESO NACHOS: easy cinco de mayo recipe

Last week, we shared about the trend of cooking with beer, along with a great recipe for beer battered grilled cheese sandwiches.

This week, we're continuing that trend and sharing Betty Crocker's Beer Queso Nachos, which is perfect for the upcoming Cinco De Mayo Holiday. As Texans, we always enjoy a good Cinco De Mayo meal, it's just going to have to occur in Colorado this year!
