What Is That Krunk??

Mmmm... Queso Krunk. I've talked about it on Twitter, and a few of my friends have actually indulged in the cheesy high fat goodness. The photo on the left is a new creation- the Krunkburger. I have my friend ScottyJ to thank for that. Along with the name "Krunk", but that's a whole other story...

So, recently I was asked for the recipe. I have to say first and foremost that I can't take credit for this at all. My neighbor Kimber served it at a party once, and I asked for it myself. Props go to her. She calls it "Slop", and you will see why. Of course all ingredients can be tweaked, and substitutions can be made, things omitted, etc.

Steve, this is for you baybee!

Queso Krunk

1lb. ground beef
1 small onion chopped
3/4 cup chopped pimiento
3/4 cup slivered almonds
salt/pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic or garlic powder
1 can (4oz.) chopped ripe olives
1 can (4oz.) sliced mushrooms
1 can (10oz.) tomatos w/green chilis (I can only find this in the Rotel brand but you might have better luck)
1 lb Velveeta cheese (hot mexican flavor) (If you can't find this flavor, then add chili powder to the hotness level you'd like. I know what heat level THIS guy would want.)
8oz finely chopped jalapeno peppers (this is optional, but I like 'em! Bret? Not so much.)

Brown beef and drain. Dump all ingredients into a crock pot (cube the Velveeta).
Simmer for at least 2-3 hours on low.

Really, nothing to it. But most of the greatest things came from really simple ideas.
