Unbeatable Rotel Dip Recipe – With Rotel, Velveeta, and Hamburger

I sure do love to snack and this Rotel dip recipe is one of my favorite ways to snack!

Birthday party, big sports game, or just a Tuesday afternoon….I don’t need an excuse!  Any day works for me.

I used to love this Chili Cheese Dip that my dad makes.  But tasting chili the rest of the day didn’t sit well with me as I got older. 

So I went on the hunt for an alternative cheesy dip. 

Then, another mom at my local MOPS group brought this delicious Rotel dip recipe to a meeting and the rest is history!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb. hamburger season and fried, drain well
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 Can 10oz of Diced Tomatoes with green chilies
  • 2 lb. Velveeta Cheese block 32 ounces
  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese Philadelphia is best
  • 1 Can 10.5oz of Cream of Mushroom Soup

Instructions
 

  • In a saucepan, brown the hamburger along with the garlic powder, seasoned salt, onion powder, and ground pepper. Drain fat.
  • Place browned ground beef and all other ingredients in a slow cooker and melt together on desired setting (depending on how fast you need it ready.)
  • Stir occasionally.
  • Once hot, put it on the warm setting to prevent the dip from burning onto the sides.
  • Serve with your choice of tortilla chips. My personal favorites are the Scoops. Blue chips and corn chips also taste good too.

Notes

Add salt to taste.
You can substitute the ground beef for other ground meat like ground chicken or ground turkey.
I prefer my pieces of meat to be smaller, so after draining the fat I run mine through a food processor for a few seconds until all of the pieces are small.
You can use a can of Rotel tomatoes for this or your favorite canned tomato brand.
Store any remaining dip in an airtight container in your refrigerator.
Want to add a little kick to this hot cheese dip? Try adding some spicy ground sausage or some hot sauce for a spicy dip with a little heat.
I have found that Philadelphia cream cheese melts better than other brands however you can definitely go with another brand if needed.

Stove Top Rotel Dip Recipe Instructions

Want to make this recipe on the stovetop? No problem!

Just follow the recipe above but instead of putting everything in a slow cooker when you get to step 2, put it in a medium-sized pot or large skillet and warm on medium-low heat until all of the cheese is melted.

Instant Pot Rotel Dip Recipe Instructions

I do not recommend pressure cooking this dip recipe. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t use your Instant Pot.

In fact, I use mine all the time for this recipe. For step 1, use your Instant Pot on Saute mode to brown your ground beef, then switch it over to the slow cooker mode at step 2.

Your family is going to love this dip! Print the recipe card, make it, and enjoy!  You won’t be sorry!
