Step 1

Put a saucepan over low heat. Add the Velveeta and let it slowly melt.

Once the Velveeta is mostly melted through, add the Rotel, Cholula, paprika, and garlic, and stir slowly until everything is melted and incorporated.

In the meantime, break your blue corn chips into jack-o-lantern shapes: two small triangle eyes, a round nose, and a smiling mouth, or feel free to get creative and make up your own design.

Pour the warm queso into a round or square serving bowl and place the "face" on the queso. Place a green onion on the top for the stem.

Garnish with more blue corn chips and enjoy!
