Famous Queso Dip Recipe - easiest cheese dip recipe ever!

My oldest son wanted to have a sleep over with this friends. He said, “We’re going to stay up all night!”

“Oh, yes, that’s what I want too!” (Not.)

I know. I know. He’ll be grown soon enough and I’ll miss these times. And, to be honest, I really don’t mind as long as I get to sleep!

Famous Queso Dip Recipe - easy cheesy dip with VELVEETA AND RO*TEL


The last time he had a sleepover, they stayed in a tent in the back yard. (That was before our possum saga. I’ll save that for another post.) They stayed up and kept me up until after 2:00 a.m. At 5:00 a.m., something woke me slightly. How I was even awake enough to realize it was the sprinklers, I’ll never know. I bolted out of bed, sped to the garage and shut the sprinkler system off as fast as I could. I ran to the back door to see if the tent was wet, although I’m pretty sure the boys would have been inside if it would have. Luckily, one sprinkler had missed them by 3 feet. They never even knew it.

Taking care of boys for a sleepover is a breeze. All you really need is good food and a football or baseball. There’s no drama, no fighting over the bathroom, no fighting over who’s sleeping by who. They just hang.

They’re just little men. Food + sport = happy.

But, that means the food is really important. I can handle that. I just want it to be simple, hearty and good.

Nacho bar. Done.

It only takes two ingredients to make this wonderful cheese dip recipe. The first ingredient is Velveeta cheese, or you can use another melty cheese, but Velveeta is the traditional cheese. The second ingredient is chopped tomatoes and green chiles, better known simply as ‘rotel tomatoes’ or ‘rotel’.
