This is so simple but its always a favorite at parties. Variations are almost endless with the choices of salsas available these days. You get to choose hot or mild, chunky or saucy. Personally I love the chunky chipotle kind.


  1. Cut the cheese up into 1 inch cubes.
  2. You can either put them in a bowl and use the microwave or just dump them in the crock pot.
  3. If using the microwave melt the cheese, stir in the salsa and heat for another minute.
  4. In the crockpot pour the salsa on the cheese cubes and stir after it has cooked for 10 or 20 minutes on low.
  5. I usually make a double recipe and keep the other half in the fridge after its cooked for snacking at home.

We liked this but I like the Rotel better. I made 1/4 the recipe and added enough salsa to bring it to the consistency that we wanted. Served this with chips. A good salsa is a must in this recipe. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.

I started out with 1 cup of salsa and discovered that the amount of Velveeta and salsa was not to our liking. I ended up adding an additional cup of salsa and we liked that much better. I served this initially as a dip and used the leftovers for the cheese sauce on nachos.
