Dana Perino shows off her culinary prowess for her Super Bowl guests, but the Internet is not impressed.

Fox News anchor Dana Perino never imagined that her attempts at making a traditional dip for the Super Bowl would land her in hot water - or hot queso, in this case.

Perino posted a photo of her culinary attempt on Twitter and reaped an unprecedented storm of comments and criticism.

“So yesterday I made queso for the #SuperBowl and then I, maybe mistakenly, posted a photo online with the caption ‘I made queso’ and the Twitterverse melted down like the cheese that was left out in the sun too long.”

TO QUESO OR NOT TO QUESO, THAT IS THE QUESTION

Perino has taken the fall-out over her disastrous attempt at "queso" with her usual zany sense of humor. 

The photo she posted showed a rather unfortunate looking mass of distinctly scorched cheese - and she claimed to have used a recipe from Chili's Grill & Bar.

Perino revealed that she herself had not eaten it, but that her guests had made no complaints about the maligned "queso."

CHILI'S GRILL & BAR SAY PERINO WAS "BRAVE"

Chili's Grill & Bar responded by retweeting Perino's image with their own delicious looking bubbly queso captioned:

"Yeah, it's supposed to look like this..."

Chili's did praise Perino for her attempt to recreate the traditionally spicy hot cheese dip and labeled her effort as "brave."

DANA PERINO'S JOURNEY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO "QUESO"

Admirers of Dana Perino know her as an astute political commentator, who started her career as one of the White House Press Secretaries during the George W. Bush administration.

Perino's family is of Italian origin, as is evident in her name - which means rock. This tough lady started out in broadcasting, focusing her interest on public affairs, and working in both radio and TV.

Perino then worked for Congressman Scott McInnis as a staff assistant; then for Rep. Dan Schaefer, as a press secretary. Perino was nominated by President Obama to serve as a member of the Broadcasting Board of Governors in 2009. The BBG is responsible for overseeing international broadcasts backed by the U.S. government and making sure they are not being used as mere propaganda or skewing facts.

A far cry from making "queso", though this lady has a talent for stirring the political hot pot.
