How to Make Rotel Dip in a Crockpot

This recipe for rotel dip has two parts. You have to cook the hamburger in a skillet before dumping the rest of the ingredients in the crock pot.

  • First, you want to cook your ground beef over medium-high heat in a skillet. Drain the cooked ground beef and place it in your slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle an envelope of Taco Seasoning over the ground beef to season and stir. Do not add water. The taco seasoning will also blend in the cheese.
  • Next, cut the Velveeta cheese brick into cubes. This will allow the cheese to melt faster and evenly.
  • Add the Rotel to the crockpot and give the ingredients a good toss.
  • Cover the crockpot and cook on High for 2 hours.
  • Finally, uncover and stir. Serve from the crockpot or transfer a portion to a dip serving bowl. Garnish with diced Roma tomatoes and cilantro. Serve with corn chips.
