Home Made Velveeta, Chili, Cheese Dip; My Way

nacho cheeseVelveeta is famous for its fantastic cheese dips and other recipes and everyone has their own way of creating their game day dips. This particular recipe is pretty fast and easy to make. Its great for slumber parties, family reunions, pot lucks, sports games, birthday parties etc. You name it! Today I am going to share mine.

What You Need:

  • 1- 2pound block of velveeta original cheese
  • 1-2 cups of Breakstones Sour cream
  • 2 cans of Hormel No Bean Chili
  • 1 can Rotel Tomatoes with green chilies

Cooking Method:

  • Crock Pot or Stove top

Directions:

Crock Pot Method: You can technically throw it all in the crock pot and set it on low. I prefer to do it as directed below.

  1. Turn Crock Pot on medium and add both cans of chili.
  2. Place rotel tomatoes in a 2-3 quart size sauce pan and turn heat on low.
  3. Cut the Velveeta Cheese into cubes. They don’t have to be huge or very tiny. I just cut it down so it melts better. As your cutting it just toss the cheese on top of the tomatoes in the sauce pan. I do this so the juices are on bottom to prevent the cheese from possibly getting scorched as it heats.
  4. Place lid on pan and turn heat up to medium until it starts getting creamy, then turn it down so it doesn’t burn.
  5. Stirring consistently. Add sour cream and mix it in. The sour cream seems to help the cheese from getting that thick, sticky consistency and keeps it smooth.
  6. Once your cheese mix is good and melted then pour it over the chili in the crock pot or into the larger pot on the stove.
  7. Turn Crock pot on Low/Warm and serve with Chips, Hot Dogs, Baked Potatoes or anything else your heart desires.

Stove Top Method:

  1. In a large pot add rotel tomatoes and turn on low.
  2. Cut the Velveeta Cheese into cubes. They don’t have to be huge or very tiny. I just cut it down so it melts better. As your cutting it just toss the cheese on top of the tomatoes in the sauce pan. I do this so the juices are on bottom to prevent the cheese from possibly getting scorched as it heats.
  3. Place lid on pan and turn heat up to medium until it starts getting creamy, then turn it down so it doesn’t burn.
  4. Stirring consistently. Add sour cream and mix it in. The sour cream seems to help the cheese from getting that thick, sticky consistency and keeps it smooth.
  5. Add Both Cans of Chili
  6. Turn heat down to low and let the flavors blend. Once heated serve Chips, Hot Dogs, Baked Potatoes or anything else your heart desires.
