Lest you think my children are fed a diet free of artificial foods, behold a Rowland family favorite:

The recipe for this dip most likely came the back of a can of RO*TEL, but the Rowland clan claimed it as their own a long time ago. Some of the extended family got together recently and I had the pleasure of whipping up a batch for the first time in several years.

1 pound Velveeta cheese
1 can RO*TEL tomatoes

Cut Velveeta into cubes. Place cubes in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave for approximately two minutes or until melted. Pour in undrained RO*TEL tomatoes and stir to combine. Serve with tortilla chips. 

Yield: 3 cups
Prep-time: 5 minutes

  1. Love this! It’s one of our go-to dips as well! Haven’t had it in a while, maybe I need to whip up a batch. . .

  2. It’s been a looong time since I’ve made that dip, but you’re right – so good! I’m like you (I think)…I have a shameless affinity for foods with velveeta and canned soups. I don’t use those ingredients very often, but every now in then I indulge with care.
