True story: the very first recipe I posted on One Particular Kitchen involved RO*TEL. I also use it in jambalaya. And chili. My love affair with the magical can of tomatoes and chiles started in college, though, when Kiddo’s Aunt Burgle introduced me to the classic Velveeta/RO*TEL dip at a UT vs. Alabama football party. We added browned up sausage to it and it was a meal; it’s still a staple in both our households five ten a few years and a few kids later.
- 1 lb. Velveeta cut into 1″ cubes
- 1 can RO*TEL
- 1 lb. breakfast sausage, browned and crumbled
- Heat in a microwave or a slow cooker and stir till melted and combined; serve with chips
CONTEST CLOSED, KIDS! 🙂
