Ahh m, good times.
Better that than what happened to that NY Giants defensive player.

Make a batch, sometime, just for the new experience. Get some low salt chips, if you can. The dip doesn't need any help.

I will say that the ALDI substitute for Velveeta did have a smoother, creamier texture. I didn't notice any difference in saltiness -- they are both too salty, IMO.

I made mine Sunday with one block of Clancy's version of Velveeta, one can of no-salt added Rotel Tomatoes & Chilis, one can of Campbell's Cheddar soup (don't dilute), and one chub of pork breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled.

I have a Cuisinart fondue pot, and I find that it works well for making the dip and keeping it hot -- set on level 3 of 10. A crock pot works well, too.
