This is adapted from a Southern Living recipe. Makes a nice side dish for a Tex-Mex family dinner. Uses Rotel tomatoes and Mexican Velveeta. You can choose the mild or spicy versions of each to suit your taste.

I love this recipe. It is just the perfect combo of textures and tastes! My neighbor made this for me the first time and I asked her to make it so many times (for neighborhood parties and such) that she finally just gave me the recipe. Yummy!
