Do I Have to Use “Velveeta”?

My honest answer…I don’t know. I have never used a store brand equivalent of Velveeta. It’s always been the name brand stuff. Mostly, because, another brand is tough to find. If you want to try something similar that isn’t “Velveeta” brand, it should work OK, but, I can’t guarantee that. Also, if you do and it works…please let me know!

What is Rotel?

“Rotel” is the brand name for a specific type of canned tomatoes. They are small diced tomatoes that will also include green chilis. Now, these will be easier to find in another brand. You can go with hot, mild or just grab a can of small diced tomatoes with no seasoning at all. It’s up to you. Whichever you choose, you will still need the specific can size to make the recipe work.

Do I Have to Drain the Tomatoes?

Your choice! You can and it will give you a thicker queso. Avoid draining and you will have a thinner queso.

How Do I Make This in My Slow Cooker?

I always make this in my’s easy and quick. However, making this in your slow cooker/crock pot is an option. Especially, if you want to keep it warm for a period of time. Check out the recipe card for instructions for both!

Storage & Reheating

  • Keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator. It’s best eaten within 2-3 days. I don’t recommend freezing this, because of the cheese. It could separate.
  • Reheating: Reheat queso in the microwave, slow cooker or stove top. Reheat it under low heat. If your queso seems too thick, add a bit of milk to thin it out as it heats.
