Queso Nachos


When I made the Queso Burgers, the grocery store only had Velveeta available in the super huge two pound brick. Absolutely no one needs two pounds of processed cheese product, ever, so I needed to figure out what to do with the Velveeta after making the burgers.

Then it dawned on me that the Velveeta and Rotel mixed together would be absolutely incredible over some nachos. And so the idea for this recipe was born.

    • 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
    • 6 oz. Velveeta cheese, cut into chunks
    • 10 oz. can Rotel 
    • 1/4 cup pickled jalapenos
    • 4 tablespoons sour cream
    • 1 bag tortilla chips 
    • Optional: lettuce, tomato, guacamole 
1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain any grease.
2. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, add Velveeta and Rotel and stir together until fully melted.
3. Divide tortilla chips onto 4 plates, then top with the ground beef. Drizzle a ladle-full of the Velveeta mixture over the beef and tortillas. Sprinkle with pickled jalapenos and top with 1 tablespoon of sour cream per plate. Add any optional garnishes if desired.

Honestly, I'm not even a big Velveeta fan, but when mixed with Rotel it becomes this cheesy delicious sauce that I could eat by the spoonful. Warning: you need a very high level of willpower not to eat until you are so full its hard to move. Just wanted to throw that out there.
