I made queso dip with velveeta - I don't like it

  • a

Can I turn it into something else? I've never had velveeta before and it doesn't taste good to me. The dip has sausage, tomatoes, onions, chilies. I wonder if I can turn it into some kind of enchiladas or lasagne so the cheese isn't the main focus. Thanks.

  1. Hmm....mac and cheese comes to mind, but I don't think that will ameliorate the taste that you don't like.
    Serve over scrambled eggs, maybe?

    1. (hahahah what did you expect!!)

      Since it's already mixed with other ingredients : Throw it.

      (IMO)Velveeta is one of the worse food produce ever created by mankind.

        I think I suspended my disbelief for a while! I never ever eat foods like velveeta but I thought I'd make something trashy and fun for the superbowl. My mistake!

        1. I totally understand your aversion to Velveeta, but I totally get why you tried it too!
          I always want to like stuff like that, but then you realize it's way too salty and kinda wierd.
          Maybe twice baked potatoes?
          If you fold the dip into the scooped out potatoes it should change the texture significantly, and hell, it may be kind of good!
          In a totally pedestrian way of course...;)

            Twice baked potatoes is a good idea. I mixed a few spoonfuls with tomato sauce and cooked noodles and baked it. It came out good. I think in small amounts, it's fine. But I have a ton of this stuff. I might still bring it to the superbowl party I'm going to tonight. Other people might like it I guess.

              People at the Superbowl party will definitely eat it, and you might even have someone ask for the recipe. I once watched an otherwise healthy eater snarf down an entire jar of Fritos cheese dip at a football game. Get enough beers in them...

            1. Not trying to be a jerk, but that concoction, especially with the meat is vile. But you know, most peolpe love it. Take it in a crockpot and leave it next to the bulletin board at work with a fresh bag of chips, a spoon and a little stack of paper plates.
