I've done this for a long time. I agree with another review, it is 1 can rotel w/ 1lb velveta. I'm glad to see that someone put this here. It's amazing how many people haven't heard of it. A couple hints from experience. 1. The lower the melting temperature, the thinner the cheese dip (if too hot, it will get too thick). I suggest a double boiler. 2. I also add a couple tbls or pace picante sace at the beginning (if later it doesn't work right) to make it spicer. 3. reheating it you may want to add a little milk to keep it from being too thick. If you haven't tried this, you're missing out.
This is the national dip of Arkansas, who I read is No 1 in consumption of velveeta cheese. I add 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tbsp chili powder, and about 1/3 cup milk to assist with the creaminess of this cheese dip....
I make this too, but I put 2 cans of Rotel and a pound of browned ground beef. Yummy!
Great recipe. I add 1 lb of browned ground beef. Super yummy.
I make this dip all the time for different parties, events, and even pot lucks. This can be done in a microwave if you cube the cheese as well as on the stove top. This also stores well for reheating later! This is definately a repeat recipe in my household!
Did this recipe for Easter for about 28 people. Doubled the recipe and it was gone before I could even get to it! I added a diced jalapeno as well as a little Cayenne pepper. I'm making it again tonight for a dinner party.
We do it in the microwave for 5 minutes and it may be thick but we like it that way
Add a package of sausage! Trust me and I'm not even a sausage fan.
We've been making this for years with variations as we get ambitious. Great simple recipe. I typically put it in the microwave to heat a minute at a time stirring in between.
Like many others here, I have also been making this for decades. I heat the Rotel in a saucepan along with 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds, then add the cubes of Velveeta. Just before ready to serve I throw in cubes of cream cheese and stir constantly until they are ALMOST totally blended. (I miss the original Rotel, the one with whole tomatoes! But I just saw on the Rotel website they have a "Chunky" version that isn't currently available in my area - I'll keep looking for it...)
