As I was doing my grocery shopping today, I found a new type of Velveeta, Queso Blanco, a white version of the original Velveeta. The guys couldn't really taste a difference, but I liked the smoother and milder taste.
Everyone knows the traditional recipe:
1 can Rotel Tomatoes
1 lb. (1/2 large block) of Velveeta Cheese
Directions: Cut cheese into small chunks; combine with tomatoes. Cook until completely melted.
(I have found that the best method for melting the cheese is using a double boiler. Of course, when my kids make it on their own, they use the microwave!) Serve with your favorite tortilla chips!
I am happy with the traditional Rotel Dip, but often times I change it up a bit by adding other ingredients.
~ Browned and drained breakfast sausage
~ Leftover taco meat
~ 1 can of chili (no beans)
~ 1 pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and well drained and 1 8 oz. cream cheese
~ Sauteed onions and 1 large can of green chilis
Enjoy football season and share this great cheese dip with friends and family!
