What is queso?

Of course, if you've spent any time in Austin, you know exactly what it is--but would your average Jeopardy! contestant have any idea?

Earlier this week, the game show featured an answer on the "cheesy dip," as they called it, that named dropped Austin's own Torchy's Tacos.

"If I'm down Austin way," the answer reads, "I say goodbye to my chips after dunking them in this cheesy dip, like the one at Torchy's."

Happily, contestant Erika Eason, a teacher from Maryland, got it right, adding $400 to her score.
