Thanksgiving Recipe Favorites - Daddy's Appetizer Cheese Dip

I don't know about you, but at our house, thanksgiving dinner is usually not quite ready when the company begins to arrive. And that's okay, it gives us time to get reacquainted before the meal and before they roll...ahem...head home. We all need something to keep the hungry masses from getting cranky before the turkey is done. For us, it's the always-requested-and highly-disappointed-if-it's-not-there Cheese Dip that my hubby makes. It's the usual hot Velveeta type dip, and his is never quite the same from one time to the next. One year, he dictated the recipe to me so I could pass it along to my sister, Cindy. And that's what you will be getting here. But don't worry, you really can't mess this up. We serve ours with Tostitos and for the low-carbers *cough*me*cough*,- veggies).
"Daddy's" Appetizer Cheese Dip
2 lb. box Velveeta, diced
1 can Rotel brand tomatoes with cilantro & diced tomatoes in tomato sauce (or whatever version you like and/or can find)
1 can regular Rotel
Put all the above ingredients in crock pot on low.
While that is beginning to melt, brown a small package of chorizo (about 3 links. Squeeze the chorizo out of the casings into the skillet to cook.) Cook til "dry" (I guess when all the liquid has cooked off)
Add the chorizo to the cheese mixture in the crock pot.
*Note- he has also used ground beef but I think we like the chorizo best.
**'nother Note- we usually keep the Rotels mild since we have assorted ages and palates eating it.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!
