My dad started this recipe in our family. I grew up making it with my dad and after his death I have continued to make it. I have tweaked it to suit my family. Great to make for the Superbowl or a casual get together. All the spices are to taste. The measurements below are estimates, I rarely measure. Feel free to cut back on the Jalepeno if you don't like your food spicy. Also, instead of just plain ground beef, I have made it using left-over chili, just cut back on the spices then.Use more or less Milk to make cheese as thin/thick as you like, keep in mind the salsa will thin it out. You can use Pepper jack Velveeta if you cannot find the Mexican style. Also, leftover chili or 1/2 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb Chorizo instead of ground beef has had awesome results in my household, just cut back on seasonings. My mother likes to put this into a Crockpot to cook while she makes dinner.
- 32 ounces Velveeta Mexican cheese, cut into small cubes
- 16 ounces Velveeta cheese, cut into small cubes
- 1⁄8 cup milk

- 1 -2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 -2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 -2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 (13 ounce) bags tortilla chips or 2 (13 ounce) bags Frito Scoops
- In a small saute pan, saute jalapeño until softened.
- In a large pot, heat cheese and milk on medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
- Once cheese is melted, slowly mix in salsa, jalapeño, green chilies and ground beef.
- Mix in seasonings.
- Enjoy with Chips.
- I usually use a slice of Fresh lime to spice up the chips a little. Try it on one chip to make sure you like it.
- If you are making it in the Crockpot, just through it all in and stir occasionally. Cook on Low.
