Rotel dip is an easy dip recipe made with meat, cheese, and Rotel Tomatoes, which are petite, diced tomatoes with green chilis and spices. (It’s almost like salsa.)

This Rotel dip recipe never lets us down. It’s always a crowd pleaser– it has the perfect amount of spicy heat in each bite. You can dip just about anything into it. I usually serve it alongside tortilla chips, bagel chips, crackers, or veggies.

ROTEL DIP INGREDIENTS

You Will Need:

  • 16 ounces of Velveeta
  • 10 ounce can of Rotel
  • 1 pound of hamburger

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MEAT: If you substitute spicy sausage for the ground beef, it takes the heat up another level.

CHEESE: You can add an 8-ounce brick of cream cheese — the result will be extra creamy.

HOW TO MAKE THIS ROTEL DIP RECIPE

The ultimate appetizer, Rotel Dip couldn’t get any easier to make:

  1. Start by browning your hamburger in a skillet until cooked through.
  2. As it’s cooking, cube the Velveeta cheese.
  3. Once the meat is thoroughly cooked, stir in the cubes of Velveeta cheese and the Rotel.
  4. Stir regularly as it melts and then it’s ready to serve.

STORAGE

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze rotel dip for up to 3 months, just make it’s stored inside a freezer safe container. When you’re ready to eat, just pop it into the fridge to thaw, then heat through before serving.

    This is like what my Dad made years ago! Although no meat in his and he added lots of green chilies. I’m looking forward to making this, snd will add green chilies,
    When or if we ever had leftovers, this chilled next day made a great sandwich spread!

    Love this dip…classic for football Sundays! I like both hamburger and sausage added but prefer just the cheese and Rotel with super crispy tortilla chips!
    This queso is also yummy poured over tamales!
    I’ve never added cream cheese but might give it a try!

    My very favorite great aunt taught me this recipe! Although, we have never used hamburger in the recipe, I guess that makes it even quicker! We always used tortilla chips with ours and there was always a good game of cards!
