My husband insisted on making this appetizer for New Years, I merely was the Sous Chef & photographer. He chose Premium Beef, & the name brand cheese, although others may be used, but he has this thing about fat, & preferred to use Ground Round only.

This is one of his favorite New Years Appetizers, & the first time he has actually made it himself. We were both very proud of the results & the flavor. I am sure you will be too. Although expensive it is very good. You may opt to use a cheaper cut of ground beef and an off brand of cheese to cut back on the cost, the choice is up to you.

How to Make Dan's Roasted Red Pepper Nacho Cheese Dip

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cube the Velveeta Cheese into medium size cubes and set aside till needed.
  • 2Add both the Ground Round and Pork sausage to a medium size skillet and cook over medium high heat.
  • 3Cook meats until browned, but remove excess liquid that accumulates. Note although we used Ground Round there was still an excess accumulation of fat. Removing the fat keeps the dip nice and thick.
  • 4Chop onion & Roasted red peppers if using into medium size pieces.
  • 5Add the cooked ground meat along with the chopped roasted peppers, undrained chilis, & diced tomatoes, cream of mushroom soup. I USED A 6 QUART CROCK POT.
  • 6Add the cubed Velveeta and diced onions. Stir and mix together with a large spoon.Follow Manufactures Direction for cooking. I cooked on high for 1 hour, then removed lid and stirred. Then cooked an additional 45 minutes till cheese was melted and mixture was thick and rich. Depending on your crock pot may require MORE OR LESS TIME AS NEEDED.
  • 7Serve with chips of choice as well as optional sliced pickled jalapeno's if desired. notice how thick rich and cheesy the dip is. Add chips & a few friends & ENJOY.
  • 8NOTE: ONCE DIP IS READY TURN TO WARM SETTING. BE AWARE OF ANY CONDENSATION THAT FORMS ON LID IF LEAVING FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME AS THIS MAY DILUTE YOUR DIP.
