Ingredients

Scale

For the Traditional Velveeta Sauce

  • 16 ounces natural American cheese
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder

For the Velveeta Queso use this instead 

  • 16 ounces natural American cheese
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 10-ounce can diced tomatoes & green chilies, drained

Instructions

Microwave directions:

  1. Place all the ingredients inside a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stopping to stir every 1 to 2 minutes. The mixture might seem watery during the first few stirs, but it should thicken after all the cheese is melted.
  2. Serve immediately as a dip with tortilla chips. 

Slow cooker directions:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a small slow cooker (that will fit at least 4 cups of liquid). Turn it on high for 2 1/2 hours.
  2. Mix the ingredients every hour to prevent the cheese from sticking to the walls and possibly burning. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting, and serve.
