Looking for a great cheese dip for that football party. This is easy to make and tastes wonderful. I have found it more common in the South, but they have loved it here in the North as well.

The easiest queso ever! It's a staple. A couple of tips: Don't drain the RoTel - you're supposed to add the juice. To give it a head start, melt the cheese (dice it) and tomatoes in the microwave, one minute at a time. Stir between zaps. For a heartier dip, add some ground beef that's been browned and drained. Keep a bottle of beer handy to thin the queso if it starts drying out in the slow cooker. Enjoy!

I have been making this for years but had forgotten about it until we moved to Texas, where it is a staple appetizer at most Mexican restaurants. I usually make the whole 2 lb. block of cheese, and spice it up with more salsa, garlic powder and a little milk to thin it out.

I am from Georgia and make this all the time! The only difference is that I add one package of breakfast sausage (determine your own choice of mild, spicy, or hot), browned before added to the crockpot.
