Are you gearing up for the Super Bowl that’s just a few days away? Scouring Pinterest to find what recipes to make for the big game? I have to admit that we aren’t big sports fans here but we do love watching the Super Bowl, the commercials and of course, eating yummy foods! With a growing family, I’m all about things that can be made quick and on the table for them to snack on in no time. That’s why I love making this yummy queso dip using Velveeta & Ro*Tel. It’s not only incredibly delicious but it’s super tasty too!


So what makes this recipe super easy & super tasty? There is only 2 ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish! I used the 32 oz. package of Velveeta and 2 cans of Ro*TelĀ® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies (one can was drained & one wasn’t to make the dip a little thicker). First, you cut the Velveeta into 1/2 inch cubes to make it easier to melt.


In a microwave-safe dish, add the can of Ro*Tel to the Velveeta.


Cover and then microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir, then microwave for another 3 minutes or until the Velveeta is all melted. Serve with chips, vegetables, crackers or pita. Chips and warmed pita are our favorite sides to the queso!


You can make a smaller batch of queso by using the same instructions as above, just using a 16 oz. package of Velveeta, one can of Ro*Tel and microwaving for a total of 5 minutes (stirring halfway through) or until the Velveeta is melted.

My 15 year old son loves ordering queso at one of our favorite restaurants. He tasted this queso and said it tasted just like the one he usually orders (and we didn’t have to spend $60+ ordering lunch out!). It’s also so easy to have Velveeta & Ro*Tel on hand in your pantry. Whenever a guest stops by unexpectedly or you just want a quick, tasty snack, you can quickly pull out the ingredients and make this dip.


The Ro*Tel gives the queso a spicy kick but it isn’t too spicy for guests that don’t like eating spicy foods. Even my 6 year old son loved it! It’s also perfect for adding to tacos, burritos and a big plate of nachos! Plus, this is a great base to add in other ingredients and create new dips. You can add in bacon, ground beef, shredded beef, chicken, chili. spinach and so many more great add-ins!
