Spicy Hot Cheese and Sausage Dip
But don’t fret, according to Kraft’s website, in the 1930s, Velveeta became the first cheese product to gain the American Medical Association’s seal of approval. So pick up a block (you can usually find it near the chip aisle and try not to think about the fact that it doesn’t have to be refrigerated before opening) as it’s practically a health food and you can serve it with vegetables!
I’ve adapted this one from a recipe that my family loves and calls “hot cheese” (one can Rotel+ one block Velveeta melted and stirred well.) My recipe makes enough to feed a large crowd but will also save well in the refrigerator.
