How to make ro-tel

Can anyone help me out please :?: I am getting ready to head to the grocery store. Nobody up here has ro-tel and so I was wanting to make some to put into some velveta cheese for a dip. Does anybody have an idea on how to make ro-tel so that it is fairly close to the canned kind, or can anyone help me out with just the ingredients?????
Thanks

According to their web site, www.ro-tel.com it's nothing mre than tomato and chiles for the original recipe. Probably has a bit of salt tossed in as well.

Pick up some good quality canned whole tomatoes and some fresh cihiles such as jalapenos, or serranos and experiment.[/url]

Pace salsa also works well in a pinch with velveeta cheese as a dip. Use about 1 cup of salsa for the small loaf of velveeta.

Never heard of using Velveeta as a dip base. :oops:

Heading down the road now so I'll pick some up & give it a go.

Brooksy, besides the salsa version here are the other versions I have seen.

Rotel Velveeta Dip

Ingredients:
1 lb. Velveeta Cheese cut into squares
1 can Rotel Tomatoes with Chili Peppers

Preparation Instructions:
Combine ingredients; place over low heat until cheese melts. Serve hot
with chips.


TACO DIP

1 lb. Velveeta cheese
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes
1 lb. hamburger
1 pkg. taco seasoning

Melt cheese in a double boiler or nonstick pan with the juice from the Ro-tel tomatoes. Chop tomatoes very finely and add to cheese. Let simmer 15 minutes. Cook hamburger until light brown, drain excess grease. Add 3/4 cup water and 1/2 package taco seasoning. let simmer for 1/2 hour, then add cheese mixture to hamburger and let simmer 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally. Can be used as a dip for Doritoes or topping for burritoes or tacos. Use your imagination and taste

Thanks Sierra, much appreciated.

I think an OMG is called for.

Copied & pasted.

Would you believe I trapsed all over Woolies & couldn't find any Velveeta anywhere. No Romano cheese either!
I'll have to look further afield.

I ended up 1 up on MDW because I found the split peas for the "End of Ham Soup" that she couldn'r find.

Velveeta cheese and canned chili make a good dip too.

Thanks for all your replies. I was so short on time I just ended up using a pre-made chili con queso dip. I am still going to try to play around with the tomatoes and chilie's to see if I can come close to matching it.
