The big game is coming. I have a secret weapon to satisfy all those hungry football fans filling your kitchen and on the hunt for snacks. Ro*tel and Velveeta two ingredient queso dip! I not only serve the zesty, creamy queso with tortilla chips, but I also use it to make these tasty Taco Turnovers in a snap.

Making homemade queso is super easy when you combine the bold, zesty flavors of the classic Ro*tel diced tomatoes and green chilies with creamy Velveeta. Both ingredients are perfect for stocking in the pantry so they are always on hand when I need them for a quick snack or appetizer for guests.

Simply empty a can of Ro*tel tomatoes in a microwave safe bowl, add diced Velveeta, and heat the ingredients according to the directions on the can of Ro*tel tomatoes (or check out the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post). Voila! You have zesty, creamy queso ready to serve.

To take this queso to the next level and create a second appetizer to serve, I simply add browned ground beef. 

Once all three ingredients are thoroughly combined I set aside to prep the store bought puff pastry. I unfold the pastry, cut into even squares, and add a spoonful of the queso to the center of each square. Then fold opposite corners of the square over the filling to form a triangle, seal the edged with a fork, and brush with egg wash.


That is if you can keep your family from eating all the queso while you are trying to fill the turnovers. As you can see, warm and gooey q
ueso made with Ro*tel and Velveeta is hard to resist when there are chips on the counter. I’m lucky I had any ingredients left to fill the turnovers with these two around.

Velveeta and Ro*tel queso is a quick, easy and an amazingly versatile recipe. It’s definitely the perfect addition to your next big game get together or lazy Saturday afternoon with the family.
