Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies - Rotel comes in spicy, fire roasted, original, no salt added, or mild. It is up to you which can of Rotel tomatoes you use. If you don't have any Rotel you can sub with salsa.

Heat resistant potholders - A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn't realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.
Serving Dish - this can be served in a cast-iron skillet or in a serving dish. This recipe can be served in a slow cooker to keep it warm for parties.
How to make Velveeta Rotel Dip with Ground Beef
Step 1 - Brown ground beef over medium heat until cooked. Crumble with mix n chop until the hamburger is no longer pink.
If you are adding in taco seasoning or chili powder I suggest adding it in while the ground beef is cooking.
Step 2 - Drain grease from the pan. Add in Velveeta, Rotel, and Chili Powder. Stir until smooth and melted.
Do NOT drain the Rotel before adding it to the ground beef!!!!
Step 3 - Serve hot with tortilla chips
Slow Cooker Velveeta Dip Recipe
This dip works great in a crockpot. Brown the beef on the stovetop, drain the grease and then add the hamburger into the slow cooker with the Velveeta and Ro-tel.
Turn the slow cooker to low and stir randomly until everything is melted and smooth. Turn the crockpot to warm before serving.
If you have any leftovers they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Make sure they are in a sealed airtight container.
This dip can be stored in a freezer safe container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just thaw it in the fridge and then heat it before serving.
This classic cheesy queso dip can be reheated in the microwave, on the stovetop, or in a slow cooker.
If you find that the cheese starts to harden you can place your skillet back on the stovetop over medium heat to reheat it.
