We made this for our game day party and it was loved by all. It was so simple to make (though it into the crockpot) and it had a wonderful taste. Thank you for sharing with us.

This is very good stuff. Is it the exact same recipe given on the Ro-Tel cans? I didn't look. I had a partially used brick of "pasteurized process cheese spread" on hand, so I measured out 1 lb. for this recipe. It's very easy to make, and I ate the whole batch over several days, using corn tortilla chips. I thought it looked a little bit runny, but I soon learned that it has just the right consistency. I should also mention that this refrigerates and reheats nicely, without any problems. I enjoyed this quite a bit!
