  • 1 10 oz can Rotel Original diced tomatoes and green chilies undrained
  • 1 lb bulk hot sausage
  • 1 10.5 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup undiluted
  • 1 lb Velveeta cheese
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • tortilla chips


  • Brown the sausage until no longer pink, breaking up into little pieces with a spatula. Drain the fat.
  • In a saucepan, heat the tomatoes and green chilies, condensed soup, beer, and Velveeta until melted and smooth.
  • Once the cheese is melted and mixture is smooth, add the meat and serve with chips.


This Velveeta Rotel dip recipe adapts perfectly for preparation in a slow cooker.
Alternatively, it can be prepared using a microwave. Simply put the ingredients in a microwave safe dish and heat, stirring every minute, until smooth.
If mixture starts to thicken too much, add more beer to adjust consistency.
If Rotel is not available, substitute 1 can diced tomatoes and 2 (4 oz) cans diced green chilies.
