Spicy and Smoked Wild Boar Queso

It's always a great day when you get a message that your friend shot a boar in Texas and is offering you a couple of pounds of meat to cook with. I was so excited for the hunter and thrilled to experiment with wild boar in the kitchen.
I took some time to decide between regular, Italian, or spicy Italian flavors. Initially, I considered making a breakfast dish, but then I opted to experiment with my dad's smoker instead.
Dive into this Wild Boar Queso, a perfect blend of bold flavors and smoky goodness. Whether you're hosting a BBQ or looking for a unique dip, this recipe is sure to impress.
