"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 (14.5 ounce) cans
diced tomatoes with mild green chiles
processed cheese food, cubed
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!
Another variation on this popular dip is to add a can of chili.
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.
I add salsa to mine and make it spicier.
Yum! Added a few scoops of sour cream cause I needed to use up! A few dashes of garlic and onion powder and a small can of green chiles! Everyone loved! Great starter recipe!
Great basic recipe! My family's been making this forever, but adds a couple dashes of cumin, and some sliced scallions.... Always a winner!
Very simple and not bad. Someone gave me half a "loaf" of processed cheese so I used it for this. Since I only had half the loaf I only used one well drained can of diced tomatoes with green chiles.
