Whip up a batch of this tasty Rotel cheese dip for your next party. With just 3 ingredients, you will be amazed by how flavorful and delicious it comes out!
That’s mainly thanks to the Rotel. There really isn’t a substitution for these zesty tomatoes and green chilies. I love this dip because not only is a total crowd pleaser, but it is really, really easy. It’s all made in one pot and is ready in about 15 minutes.
If you want to keep it warm, I recommend transferring the Rotel Dip to your slow cooker on the keep warm setting. Cover it with the lid and place a ladle next to it. That way, people can serve themselves some chips and dip and it will stay the perfect temperature.
