You can probably substitute chicken in this as well. I used to make Rotel Chicken which had a similiar recipe as this, until I figured out that mac n cheese is even faster! Not as good though.

okay the best I can explain. Velveeta cheese come in a 2 lb. log it is a pasteurized prepared cheese. It melts better than other cheeses and it is really creamy and yummy. If you do not have it just use cheddar. Rotel is diced tomoatoes with green chilies it gives a spicy sort if mexican flavor. If you don't have it just use a can of diced tomatoes and diced green chilies.

Does a whole can of rotel in that recipe make it rather spicy? Seems to me that it might, but I've mellowed out in my spicy food taste.

It is spicy but not totally overwhelming. I use the milder rotel instead of the original when I don't want all the spice. It really makes a difference. You could also just use a can of diced tomato.

I will have to look for the mild rotel, as I really like the flavor it adds.

Are you draining the tomatoes first or using juice and all?
This looks quick and easy and great for when our nieces are here with us!
Thanks for sharing!
