RO*TEL and VELVEETA :: A Winning Combination :: Margarita Shrimp Queso
But not just any dip, VELVEETA and RO*TEL to be precise. Two ingredients synonymous with game day, you just can’t imagine game day without them. Spicy, creamy and convenient, you can be fist-pumping for your favorite team with one first and dipping your chips with the other. Football might not make a whole lot of sense to me, but I know that game day is always a good time, with good friends, family and as always – amazing food. This is how we celebrate our game day, with traditional VELVEETA and RO*TEL, otherwise known as Queso. Cook it up for a crowd and jazz it up (add in margarita-marinated shrimp like I did) and have a game day fiesta! No matter how to slice it, VELVEETA and RO*TEL make game day festive.

Queso=equals cheese=best thing on earth 🙂
I LOVE Rotel and Velvetta together for the best dip I’ve ever had. In my home, we call it “Rovetta”. The Ingredients are simple, the ease of making it is elemental, but the ending result is unbelievable. The taste is sublime. Not trying to be melodramatic, but it really is that good. When you just want a quick snack for a family-in night, a get together with friends, or even a Football/Baseball get together, this is the recipe to make. No mess, no headaches, just plain good “Rovetta.”
