Cheese Con Queso Dip

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

I've been making this for over 20 years, and was surprised not to see it here on Zaar. I got this recipe from my dear Auntie. I've changed it a bit over the years to make it "just a little less" on the fat than the original, but if you make this, forget your diet! I make it for special occasions only. Leftovers are great on hamburgers, in chili, use your imagination! It's yummy! The tomatoes and jalapenos can be substituted with 1-2 cans Rotel. Serve with chips of your choice.

Easy to make and so good! Instead of using regular Velveeta, I used 2% milk Velveeta. I completely omitted the butter....still delicious and the calories from fat dropped from 82% to 39%. We used apples for dipping!
