1Cut cheese into a few chunks and place all ingredients inside a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes or until all is melted, stopping to stir every 1-2 minute.
Not all white American cheeses are made equal. Check ingredients because some… well, don’t really expire. If it says “cheese product” it’s probably not real. Get the best quality you can find and afford from the fresh deli department – DON'T use sliced or pre-shredded cheese!
4To make amazing Rotel (Queso) dip, fry 1 lb breakfast pork sausage (mild or hot) and drain grease. Melt 1 1/2 - 2 pounds Velveeta, 1 or 2 cans of Rotel Tomatoes, drained (hot or original), and add pork sausage. Serve hot with Tortilla chips. If you like it a little hotter add crushed red pepper flakes.
