Paula Deen's Recipe Roundup Deadline is Right Around the Corner!

Paula Deen's Recipe Roundup Deadline is Right Around the Corner!

by sunshine on June 11, 2008

Just a reminder for those of you that may want to enter Paula’s Recipe Roundup….the deadline for entry’s is July 1st! I just got around to entering my recipe today, which of course I would love to share with you! It’s nothing fancy, but sure is tasty!!

I know you’ve all had Queso millions of times (or as it’s called in these parts, “Cheese Dip”), but this is my all-time favorite way to make it!! A lot of times we’ll make Nacho Salad with this queso and make it a meal. We’ll pile on all the queso, veggies, beans, jalapeños and guacamole we can onto a plate and then we’ll DIG RIGHT IN!!

Paula Deen, if you’re looking…..THIS IS A WINNER!! : )

Tex-Mex Queso
a Crawford original


1 lb. ground beef

½ small onion, diced

1 Packet of Mild Taco Seasoning (if you are feeling adventurous you can use Hot!)

1 Can Rotel (with all the juices)

½ Cup Salsa or Pace Picante Sauce

16 oz (1 package) Velvetta Cheese


  1. Brown ground beef and diced onion in a skillet until cooked and onion is tender. Drain.
  2. Stir in taco seasoning and cook according to directions on package.
  3. In crock pot (on low) or large saucepan, mix beef mixture with remaining 3 ingredients. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring frequently until Velveeta is completely melted melted. (for quicker results, you can microwave all ingredients in a microwave-safe container for 5 minutes, stirring every 1-2 minutes.)
  4. Serve in festive dish with tortilla chips (queso will need to be warmed from time to time to prevent thickening)

Yields 3 cups

*If it’s too thick, you can add a little bit of milk until it becomes your desired consistency. If I have another can of Rotel laying around I’ll just add some of that until it thins up.

**Of course, you can always add or take away whatever you like (or don’t like). This is just what we have found to like. If you’re looking to make it a little hotter, you can always add chopped pickled jalapeños to the dip or some hot sauce. I like Cholula (I love this hot sauce because it has lots of flavor without being too hot). However you make it, it’s sure to come out delicious!!
