Drain 1 can of tomatoes if a thicker dip is preferred.
Yummy. Queso yummy yummy yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love this dip. I add 1# brownwed Italian sausage to the mixture makes a great tasting dip.
I add fajita chicken and cilantro to the mixture. It is a big hit with guests.
I browned 1# of ground beef using no seasoning, then rinsed it under hot water to remove the fat. I then returned it to the pan, and added 1/2 of a chopped onion, taco seasoning (I make my own, but a regular packet otherwise), and 1/2 cup water. I let water simmer out of the mixture over medium-low heat (5-10 min.), then added two undrained cans of original Rotel, and one well-drained can, and let it come to a simmer. Then I added a 2# block of Mexican Velveeta, cubed. Holy smokes... I will say it's pretty thin, and I think a person could do all of the above the same and instead just use 1# of Velveeta for a thicker dip. But delicious as is.
I have been making this dip it for many years. I have always put a 1/2 a small container of sour cream in it? My family and friends love it a ask for request it often.
The original recipe has always been a favorite, but if it is too thick, I add skim milk. It makes it perfectly smooth and keeps it that way. Sometimes I add a little cumin, chili powder, and dry mustard just for a twist.
