    I too found the recipe very watery. So the next time I made it I drained the tomatoes and let them sit in a strainer for an hour to thoroughly drain. I made a bechemal using a rue and melted the cheese. I added the tomatoes at the last 2 to 3 minutes. For a kick you can add pickled Jalapenos as well to give it more flavor.

    I kinda use this same recipe except I add a drained can of shredded chicken breast. It's delicious and goes great with Tortilla chips or scoops!

    I just made this and I am very disappointed. It wasn't watery like other people stated but the Velveeta was the only thing I could taste with the exception of the occasional pepper or tomato piece. Next time I make it I'll probably only use 12oz of cheese rather than the 16oz it calls for.
