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.
