Notes

  • Initially, you will think that there is too much liquid in the Rotel for the dip, but it will mix in and be fine.
  • You can increase the heat by using the hotter Rotel tomatoes and chilis.
  • Stir frequently when preparing on the stovetop, it will want to stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • This dish is a perfect party dish! Everyone gathers around the cheese bowl!
  • You can really add a bang to this dish by adding some meat like ground beef or sausage.
  • Chopped green onions give a fresh flavor and a lovely color as well.
  • The scoop type chips work great with this dip but encourage guests to dip a LOT each time! You’ll want to make a double batch (at least) if offering scoop chips.
  • Serve this as a topping for a potato bar or with pasta or rice!
  • If you need to thin this down at all, add 2 tbs of milk initially and stir well till incorporated, increase by the 1 tbs until it is as thin as you like. Remember that as it cools, it will thicken.
  • See the instructions above the recipe card for microwave and crockpot instructions
PRO TIP: For added zip, you can add an extra 4 oz can of chopped green chilis. This will add both heat and flavor.
