One thing I know about final exams is they can be crazy stressful.

I wish I could share the secret to acing them with ease but I’m a virtual cafe owner, not an exam expert (and my university transcript sadly backs that statement up).

What I can offer you is a nacho dip recipe with enough melted cheese to temporarily make you forget about finals. It’s hard to be overly anxious about exams when you’re focused on scooping hot cheesy dip onto a Tortilla chip.

And when you’re done with finals, it also goes well with a brewski and a football game! Cheers!
