Ted Cruz seems to have a passionate love for queso. Not cheese dip, that's for crackers or little sausages, but true queso. Apparently, to him, "it speaks to the soul." He also said queso was meant to be scooped up and wolfed down with tortilla chips and shared that there's nothing better than a family nacho night.
Who knows, maybe a tortilla chip with queso was that mysterious thing on his lip that he all of a sudden ate during a speech that one time! Maybe he was saving it for later when he started to feel sluggish during the speech. Queso has been known to restore passion in anyone, even a person who some think is the Zodiac Killer!
Now only one question remains: Ted...queso dip and chill?
