what you need
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 box (32 oz.) Velveeta Pasteurized Cheese Product, cut up in cubes
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) Monterey jack cheese, cut up in cubes
  • 1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies, mild or hot
  • Milk for consistency
make it
1. Brown ground beef in a skillet. Drain and set aside.

2. In crock-pot (or large serving bowl), place cut up cheeses and empty the can of diced tomatoes. Pour a bit of milk to help smooth the cheese out while cooking or heating.

3. If using a large serving bowl, microwave for about 5 minutes and take out to stir up the cheese mixture. Add as much milk for desired consistency. Keep on microwaving for a few minutes at a time until cheese is completely melted.

4. Stir in ground beef. Serve with tortilla chips, veggies, crackers, and enjoy!
1. I like using my crock-pot with the removable pot because I can quickly heat up the cheese in the microwave and use the crock-pot to keep the cheese warm.

2. You can always replace substitute ingredients using Velveeta Light, lean ground beef or lean turkey, and skim milk.

3. My friends and I usually go through two bags of tortilla chips before the cheese runs out.

4. Great for parties! My friends loved it!
