Holiday weekends can sometimes get the best of us….especially when it comes to our favorite Labor Day barbeque meals and snacks.

Every year over Labor Day weekend my family and I have a huge barbeque celebration. My contribution to the party each year is appetizers and finger foods. One of my favorite things to make is a less guilt Queso Dip! Not only is it my favorite because less guilt technically means you can eat more ;), but it’s also great because it serves a large party if you double up the recipe!
