I don’t know about y’all, but I’m always looking for more ways to sneak Ro-tel into my life. This is my latest method! It’s insanely quick and easy and quite tasty, if I do say so myself.
- 1 lb. Velveeta
- 1 can Ro-tel
- 1 lb. sausage, browned and crumbled
- 8 flour tortillas
- Shredded cheese
- Cooking spray (like Pam)
- 1 can Ro-tel sauce (optional, but highly recommended)
- Essentially, make Ro-tel dip: heat the Velveeta and Ro-tel in a microwave or carefully-watched saucepan, then stir in browned sausage. That’s your filling! If you let it cool a bit it will thicken up and be easier to handle for filling the tortillas
- Briefly heat the flour tortillas in the microwave — about 10 seconds — wrapped in a wet paper towel so you can bend them without breaking them. Put about 1/4 cup of filling in each tortilla, roll, and put seam-side down in a sprayed baking dish
- Spray tops of burritos with cooking spray (this helps them crisp up in the oven), then top with shredded cheese and Ro-tel sauce
- Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes or until top is lightly browned and cheese on top is melted
And now for the question:
If you read OPK without the use of a reader, you may have noticed that I removed the advertisements from the blog. While there was nothing particularly terrible on the ads, they just weren’t always for food that I would use and I felt weird about that — implied endorsement and all.
I do get offers from time to time for companies wanting me to do a review/giveaway. A lot of these I skip over outright; if it’s not something I’m already using or would use anyway, it’s not going to show up here.
For those that I do or would use, though (like this recipe — I use and love Ro-tel, but this post is not sponsored by them in any way): how do you feel about reviews and giveaways? Fun to try to win something? Icky and you’d rather not see it?
The point of this blog, aside from having a place where my addled-brain self can find my recipes, is for y’all to enjoy and find something to cook, so I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
