RoTel.com offers a cheese dip recipe suitable for serving with tortilla chips. The dip takes approximately 10 minutes to prepare and five minutes to cook using a stove or microwave. The recipe makes 2 1/2 cups of dip.
To begin, cut a 16-ounce package of Velveeta cheese into 1/2-inch cubes. Put the cheese cubes into a medium saucepan and add a 10-ounce can of RoTel sauce to the cheese. Allow the cheese and RoTel to cook over medium heat for approximately five minutes or until the cheese melts. Stir frequently while cooking to prevent burning and to distribute the heat evenly. Once the cheese melts, pour the dip into a serving bowl and serve warm with tortilla chips or other items such as crackers or fresh vegetables.
To make RoTel cheese dip in the microwave, combine the ingredients into a microwave-safe dish and cook on high for three minutes. Stir the ingredients and return to the microwave to cook for an additional two minutes. Remove the dip from the microwave, and stir until all of the ingredients are blended together. Serve warm.
For extra flavor, garnish the RoTel dip with diced onions, tomatoes or peppers or a sprinkling of crumbled bacon.
