Ingredients & Variations

VELVEETA When heated Velveeta turns into the perfect dippable cheese – soft and creamy. It will remain consistently perfect with every recipe, this is why it is the best cheese for dips. 

SEASONING The secret ingredient to giving this dip a hint of Mexican-inspired flavor is the taco seasoning. This seasoning can be found at almost any supermarket.   

TOMATOES Don’t use just any canned tomatoes for the dip. Rotel tomatoes are tomatoes mixed with chilis and other spices. These tomatoes will add another dimension of flavor to this taco dip. 

VARIATIONS Sprinkle some extra shredded cheese, some black olives, shredded lettuce, or some diced tomatoes after the dip has cooked for an hour. The Velveeta can also be replaced with cream cheese. Add some refried beans for a deeper flavor.
