When I was given the task to create a Super Bowl recipe, I jumped at it. We love all things Mexican in this house. My son and daughter, while they love food, are picky when it comes to dinner. Fortunately, we’ve found that they (our son especially) share our love for Mexican food so I always know that I can make a Mexican themed dinner and that they will eat it!
I came up with this Mexican Cheese Boat recipe. Why is it called a “boat”? Because you take a fresh loaf of Italian bread and hollow it out making it shaped like a boat. Then you fill it with yummy, cheesy goodness.
There are not many ingredients in this recipe! Just buy a loaf of fresh Italian bread, and make sure you have cream cheese, salsa, refried beans and of course cheddar cheese!
Fill the loaf with the cheese ingredients and top with cheddar cheese! Cover with tin foil. Bake for 35 minutes. Take the tin foil off and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until shredded cheese is melted.
The finished product is so yummy. Warm, smooth, flavorful cheese dip just waiting to be dipped into! We dipped Delimex Taquitos and Delimex Tacos into our Mexican Cheese Boat but this Mexican Cheese Boat would also go perfectly with tortilla chips! Yum!
Dip right into your cheese boat or spoon some of the cheese onto a plate.
