Ingredients Related Tips

  • 16 ounces natural American cheese
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder

optional: (per your taste)

  • Green Chilies
  • Rotel
  • Franks Red Hot


Microwave directions:
  1. Place all the ingredients inside a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stopping to stir every 1 to 2 minutes. The mixture might seem watery during the first few stirs, but it should come together as a nice runny dip after all the cheese is melted.
  2. Serve immediately as a dip with tortilla chips. You can cool this in a loaf pan and refrigerate for a week to use as you would use traditional Velveeta.
Slow cooker directions:
  1. Place all the ingredients in a small slow cooker (that will fit at least 4 cups of liquid). Turn it on high for 2½ hours. Mix the ingredients every hour to prevent the cheese from sticking to the walls and possibly burning. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting, and enjoy!
