How to: Receive Life From Queso

katherine holmgren, beaverdamusa.com5 Times Queso Has Given Me Life:

  1. I snuck out of the office to go to Baja Burrito for lunch with a coworker. I ordered queso and used a chip as a vessel to transfer queso from the bowl to every bite of my burrito. Later that afternoon I heated up leftover chips and queso and used it as fuel while I formatted spreadsheets. It was one of the best days at work I’ve ever had.

  2. I was out of town and out to dinner with a big group of strangers and friends. The waiter asked if we wanted to start with any appetizers and I waited a beat before saying “Queso for the table, please. Put it on my tab.” Every face around the table lit up and I became the hero of the night. Everyone wanted to be my friend.

  3. I saved a homeless man once who collapsed on the sidewalk outside of a restaurant. I called an ambulance, cradled his head on my knee, whispered soothing words, the whole thing. The medics came and carted him off while bystanders applauded my fearlessness. The restaurant gave me free queso because it was the highest honor they were able to bestow on such bravery.

  4. Growing up, my mom often made taco salad for dinner and occasionally surprised us by also buying a jar of queso to snack on with chips before dinner. My heart still skips beats when I see the blue tupperware bowl we used exclusively to heat up the queso.
