Velveeta Chili Dip

by Laura

I was recently chosen to be an “abassador” for Velveeta as part of their program “Velveeta It” offering recipes and tips to help Americans serve up no-hassle recipes – from dips to dishes – that are a guaranteed hit. That’s the beauty of VELVEETA – it’s the must-have ingredient that can help make any cook – novice or expert – even more comfortable in the kitchen by making cooking fun, easy and delicious.  They even have a facebook group you can join at https://www.facebook.com/Velveeta.

I decided to start off with a really easy recipe.  This is a no brainer recipe and easy to whip together.  It’s one my family loves too.  I am also going to giveaway 3 coupons for a free 1 lb. package of Velveeta to start you off.  To enter please leave a comment about why you love Velveeta and if you haven’t had Velveeta before, tell me why you want to try it.  It’s that simple.  You have until Monday at midnight (Mountain Standard time) to enter and I’ll announce the 3 winners on Tuesday.  **need to be US Resident**

Velveeta Chili Dip
1 lb. (16 o.) Velveeta, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 can (15 oz.) chili with or without beans (I did with beans)
Mix Velveeta and chili in a microwave save bowl.  Microwave on high for 5 minutes (stirring after 3 minutes)of until Velveeta is completely melted and mixture is well blended.  Serve hot with tortilla chips, Ritz toasted chips or assorted cut up vegetables.

I really love Velveeta, but to be honest, I don't think I've had it since I was a kid. I would really like to try it again and let my kids enjoy it also!

I love Velveeta because there just isn't anything like it for recipes like Velveeta Chili Dip. I love that recipe & several others where it is combined with just a few other ingredients and melts into a creamy, delicious dip in the slow cooker.

I love that Velveeta cheese melts quickly with no lumps! and it is so smooth and creamy. It is great in potato cheese soup and dips.

I have never used velveeta because I always go with the cheaper version. But, I would love a free one.. maybe that will convince me of spending a little more and buy it!

I grew up in Texas, and every Sunday in the fall, my mother would make a batch of "hot cheese dip" with Velveeta and a can of Rotel tomatoes. We would watch the Dallas Cowboys and eat that dip with tortilla chips. Now, raising my family in Utah, I still turn to Velveeta when I want warm, comfort food. I love making the dip with Velveeta and diced tomotoes with chipotle peppers (instead of the regular green chiles). It gives a rich, smoky flavor. But sometimes I go back to the old standby of Rotel. Next time I have some leftover homemade chili, I will try mixing it with Velveeta for a dip. Thanks for the tip!

I love this recipe! I make it a lot for football parties and other "snacky/appetizer-y" parties 🙂 I love Velveeta because it's so creamy and delicious! I'm a huge fan of cheese, and Velveeta is simply the best for melting, dipping and for altogether creaminess and deliciousness, yum!

I've made this with salsa and ground sauage, but a can of chili would be even easier! yumm!

I've only used Velveeta a few times when a recipe has called for it because I am never exactly sure how to incoporate it into my cooking.

But this is what I have to say about the few times I have used it:

YUMMO!

I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this, but we use Velveeta in my husband's Apple Casserole recipe. The Velveeta makes it very easy to have that sharp cheese taste melt right in with the apples. SO yummy!

My DH and I love Velveeta. It just melts so smoothly unlike most cheeses. e just got hte Kraftfoods magazine and tried almost all of the recipes that call for Velveeta and they were delicious. We used to buy a big block of it for a recipe and not finish it. With the new recipes I got from Kraft we will never waste Velveeta again.

Velveeta makes the best broccoli cheese soup! I use regular grated cheddar cheese in the recipe, too, but the addition of Velveeta makes it very creamy & smooth!

i am always ashamed to admit this, but i love their dip recipe that is made by combining 16oz velveeta, 4 oz. cream cheese, 10 oz. chopped spinache, 8 slices cooked and crumbled bacon and a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles. stick it all in the micro and zap it until it's all melty ooey and gooey! alarmingly good and addictive. i like to throw in some chipotles too every now and then

I love Velveeta because it is convenient. We often invite people over on the spur of the moment and it is always easy to whip up this very recipe (velveeta and chili) to serve for a snack while we visit, watch a football game or play games with each other.

This IS a great tasting dip that is so easy to make!

My first experience was using Velveeta mixed in with garlic powder to use as *ahem* fish bait…worked great every time!

I would love to use Velveeta in a cheese soup recipe…

Interesting. How nice that you were picked as an "ambassador" :).

I don't purchase it, but I suppose it would make a nice dip, or melt it on tortilla chips.

Laura–

I've been following your blog for a while now via google reader. I have used tons of your recipes and have loved getting to step into your kitchen via your blog. Thank you for all of your great recipes!

I have noticed, however, that for that last day or so (did it start yesterday? The day before? I'm not sure) your blog is no longer full feed. Meaning I can't read the whole post in google reader. Did you do this on purpose? I hope not. Please, pretty please, will you make it full feed again?? I would much appreciate it.

Thanks!

Carly
