Recipe Inspiration

Recently, I asked my niece, Derinda, to send me some recipes for my blog/future family cookbook.  And she did.  They are simple to prepare and delicious.  She has a couple of young kids and lots of friends so the recipes have been expertly taste-tested.

Nacho Meat and Cheese Dip

Derinda writes, “In the spirit of the Super Bowl this is our FAVORITE Velveeta cheese dip with ground beef for chips.  It is definitely a meal in itself!”

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • PORK SAUSAGE: Use breakfast-style ground sausage sold in tubes. Italian-style sausage is going to change the recipe significantly, so I don’t recommend it. Breakfast-style turkey sausage is another option.
  • GROUND BEEF: An 85/15 blend of ground beef or hamburger is my favorite. You’ll want to drain off excess grease so the less fat you have going in, the better.
  • ONION: Yellow or white onions suit this recipe. Use frozen onions if you don’t have fresh ones.
  • GREEN CHILIES: Canned chilies are the easiest form to use in this recipes. Save yourself some time and buy the chopped ones.
  • CONDENSED CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP: This is another timesaver. If you are cooking for somebody on a gluten-free diet, try making cream of mushroom soup from scratch.
  • ROTEL TOMATOES: If you can’t find Rotel tomatoes, substitute diced canned tomatoes + green chilies. Here in Texas, you can find many copycat and store brands of Rotel that would be satisfactory.
  • VELVEETA CHEESE: Did you know there is a recipe you can make at home for Velveeta cheese? I haven’t tried it myself, but it’s a possibility if you can’t find it where you live. Cheese Whiz is another option.

What To Do with Leftovers

This makes a lot! If you have some leftover hamburger cheese dip, try making “Migas” by adding approximately 1/4 cup of cheese sauce and a handful of crumbled chips to an uncooked scrambled egg in a non-stick skillet. Stir gently until all the egg has been cooked. Serve with flour tortillas and salsa.

    I made this for a young adult Bible study that my husband leads and it was a huge hit. Now they always want it! :-) Thanks for posting!

    This is definitely a family favorite at our house too. If you like a little more "heat" use the "hot" Rotel, or add some jalapenas (anyone know how to spell that?) on top. I like the suggestion for left-overs - gotta try it.

    This looks great- very similar to Pioneer Woman's Loaded Queso... I think that's what Tyler is bringing to the Super Bowl Party. (I'll be in Houston)

    We made something similar in college, we called it "chili cheese fondu" You call tell I went to college in the early 70's when fondu was oh so chic! Mimi
