Whoa boy. I’m bracing myself for some major backlash for sharing this Cream Cheese Rotel Dip recipe with you guys today. Not out of fear that you won’t like it, but rather, out of fear that you will hunt me down, find me, and strap me to a medieval torture device because you won’t be able to stop eating this incredible oh-so-delicious-to-the-point-of-possibly-being-illegal chip dip, and you’ll want to kill the person responsible for your complete loss of all self-control! Aaaaand, that would be me.
You may scoff, but just wait until you try it, then you’ll see.
Recipe: Cream Cheese Rotel Dip
~Prep Time: 5 minutes~Serves: A crowd!~Difficulty: Way too easy
~Microwave Time: 5 min.~Stovetop Time: 5-10 min.~Slow Cooker Time: 2 hr.~
16 oz. Velveeta, cubed
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 can Rotel Mild Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (see note)
1 can chili con carne with beans
Microwave Method: Place all ingredients in large microwave-safe bowl and micro-cook for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave, stir with large wooden spoon. Return to microwave and micro-cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the Velveeta and cream cheese are completely melted. Return to microwave as needed. Stir until smooth. Serve with tortilla chips, bagel chips or crostini.
Stovetop Method: Place all ingredients in large, heavy-bottomed sauce pan and heat over medium to medium-high heat for approximately 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently with large wooden spoon. When Velveeta and cream cheese are completely melted, continue stirring until smooth. Pour into serving bowl, and get set to serve up some deliciousness!
Slow Cooker Method: Place all ingredients in slow cooker, cover with lid, and heat on high for 1 to 2 hours. Remove lid and stir until cheeses are completely smooth. Dip can remain in slow cooker set on the low setting for easy serving. Sit back and wait for the oohs and ahhs to come rolling in.
NOTE: While other brands of the tomatoes with green chilies are available, it is my understanding that no self-respecting person would make this with anything other than Rotel. Take that for what it’s worth.
