    My mother brought a case of Rotel from Texas back in the 60's we had rotel dip every year for new years eve till the case ran out. With in a couple of years of running out we found Rotel in a store in IL. Didn't have to do without it for long

    I love this dip! It's also great as a sauce over roasted or steamed veggies. I don't like large chunks of Ro-Tel in my dip, so I whizz it undrained slightly in a blender before adding it to the Velveeta -- delicious!

    I always add in a can of drained black beans. Makes it even better for a vegetarian version

    My family has made this for years only we brown Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage and add it in. It's a good dip without the sausage and better with it.
