Spicy Quinoa Cheese Dip

When I cook from a recipe, I rarely fail, but when I just wing it? USUALLY disgusting. Yesterday I was standing in my kitchen though, over-budget on my groceries, wondering what I could do with Velveeta cheese, 1 chicken breast, plus a ridiculous over stock of carrots and quinoa? What I did with it is possibly the best dip ever:

What I used:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup quinoa (cook according to package)
  • 2 carrot sticks
  • some red onion
  • 3/4 cup Frank’s hot sauce
  • 1.5 cups Velveeta

I started out by boiling my chicken breast in one pan and the quinoa in another

In a bowl I shredded carrot sticks and red onion. Then I mixed with Frank’s hot sauce (if they ever discontinue making this stuff it may be the end of me), and Velveeta. I microwaved the mixture until the cheese was mixable with the other ingredients.

When the chicken was done boiling I shredded it, then I added it and the cooked quinoa to the Velveeta mixture.

Then I ate with corn chips, and enjoyed. Obviously though, I didn’t eat the whole thing. The Velveeta alone is about 1,000 calories.

Is there any recipe you made up that turned out good? Any that turned out really bad?
