Recipe: Rotel Dip

This recipe was taken from a can of Rotel tomatoes given to me after my mother lost her battle with bone cancer. When I first spotted the Velveeta and Rotel tomatoes I was amused, but I realized the importance of being a gracious recipient.

    • 1 ten-ounce can of Rotel tomatoes (original, undrained)
    • 1 package (16 ounces) Velveeta cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes

Blend ingredients in a medium saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, about five minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serve warm with corn chips or Fritos.
