We are lucky that we live in a state that has an abundance of game animals. And football season also conveniently falls around our general hunting season. Meaning that you may find yourself with fresh venison. People in other parts of the country consider venison a delicacy. But, for us, it is part of our diet and is usually brought out for special occasions. Like a BIG game-day meal.

We are getting excited about the annual Brawl of the Wild game. One of the oldest rivalries in college football history. More importantly, it is a Montana tradition that is over a century old.  Just like the tradition of hunting on Thanksgiving, it has always been a family tradition to hunt a little in the morning. Only to race home early in the day to make food and watch football.

Today I am going to share with you one of my all-time favorite wild game dishes that is guaranteed to be a hit at your next football viewing party. This is one of those dishes where you are not going to have to worry much about leftovers. Party guests usually do a pretty good job cleaning the bowl. I'm talking about the always popular QUESO DIP.

Now, this recipe is fairly easy to make. It is one of those "set it and forget it" kinds of meals. But, you are going to need a crock-pot in order to be worry-free.

Bowl of warm queso (cheese dip) with a plate of tortilla chips

Deer Queso Dip

What you need:

  • 1 stick of Velvetta cheese. You can use more depending on the number of people, but 1 is usually fine.
  • 1 can of Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 lb of version burger (deer, elk, moose, antelope) I've tried them all and it is all good for this recipe.
  • Salt and pepper
  • Tortilla chips

How to prepare:

Simply brown your burger in a skillet. Season with salt and pepper. When brown, drain fat and spoon into crock-pot. Now, add an entire stick of Velveeta cheese and an entire can of Rotel. Place crock-pot low until cheese has completely melted. Simply stir and serve with tortilla chips.

As I said, this is one of those game-day snacks that you will most likely not have any leftovers from. Just remember to get plenty of chips, as they tend to go pretty fast.

I hope you enjoy these Wild Game Recipes for the Brawl of the Wild.
