Rotel Velveeta Dip

I had forgotten how yummy this stuff is. I made some for the first time in years for a Margarita cocktail hour on Sat. PM. It is simply a can of Rotel stirred into a pound of melted Velveeta. It is very simple and can be made in the microwave. Creamy with a bit of punch from the green chilies.

    1. It's good, easy and quick to prepare on the fly

      1. SO can devour an entire crock pot full

          ^^^^ sorta the same way we around here devour a pot full of hot Mexican bean dip.
          from scratch is the best way because the smell as it's cooking is addictive

        2. We add 1/2 pound ground beef, cooked until crumbly and drained, plus 1/2 pound ground turkey with some typical taco seasonings, cooked until dry and crispy

            or some hot sausage. Nothing wrong with velveeta and rotel

          2. I've never used the velveeta block before last month. I tried to make mac n cheese, just a box of shells and the velveeta but the result was bitter tasting (or maybe just off). I don't think I could stomach buying another block of it for other uses like rotel dip. Does this make me a bad person?

              You haven't tried it :) I've had Mac and cheese with velveeta my entire life and love it but it's a small component with other ingredients. I probably would hate velveeta and noodles alone too. Nope you're not a bad person but Rotel dip really let's velveeta shine especially with sausage.

                Did you add milk? Velveeta mac n' cheese needs milk.

                And no, of course you're not a bad person. Try the dip when someone you know makes it, and I'm here to tell you that someone you know makes it at least once a year. ;-)
