Ro-Tel Queso Con Carne

You've probably had Ro-Tel cheese dip at some party or function because it's so easy and so good.  This has been a staple in our house since...well, since I figured out Sunday football is a snacking kind of day.  It's usually made with some VELVEETA and Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chilies melted together.  We have our own little twist on this already awesome dip, though.  My husband is a meat and potatoes kinda guy.  In this case, though, he's a meat and cheese kinda guy.  He likes meat in his queso (cheese).  So, we added a little chili, added a little meat, and have our favorite Ro-Tel Queso con Carne.

This recipe only calls for 1/2 a pound of taco meat.  You can just make 1/2 a pound and cut the  taco seasoning in half or do like we do -- make the whole pound and enjoy some tacos with your queso.

1 lb. VELVEETA, cut up into cubes
2 cans Ro-Tel (choose your heat!)
1 can Wolf Chili (or other chili without beans if you can't get Wolf)
1/2 lb ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning (follow the directions on the taco seasoning packet or use the homemade taco seasoning I posted here)

1.  Combine the VELVEETA, Ro-Tel (undrained), chili, and taco meat in a large microwaveable bowl.
2.  Place in microwave for 2 minutes.  Stir.
3.  Microwave again for 1 minute.  Stir.  Repeat until the VELVEETA is completely melted.

Serves...a LOT.

This recipe is not only awesome for its deliciousness but it is crockpot-able.  Meaning, if you've got the time, you can do this all in your crockpot.  Throw all the ingredients into your crock pot.  Set the temperature to low and let it all melt together, stirring occasionally.  This takes about 2 hours.  Once it's melted, turn the setting to warm and you've got a ready made cheese dip.
