I love Frito Lay, and I love queso. So…I made a wonderful queso recipe with Frito Lay’s Tostitos Scoops tortilla chips for my mother’s 50th birthday party yesterday!
Can you say “divine?” Because they were!
I love this recipe because it reminds me of my friends and family at many of our gatherings. I love to entertain, and this is one of those dishes that is so quick and easy to whip up that it’s become a staple!
The first time I had this queso was at my friend’s house for a Sunday Fun-day pool party – a friend brought it and I just fell in love with it. I love cheese. I love sausage. I love Tostitos…so of course I love this dish! I’ve made it for my husband’s birthday party, my mother’s birthday party, and have had it on more than one occasion at the same friend’s house where I first discovered it.
This queso dish, to me, has become a symbol of good times.
1 16 oz block of Velveeta cheese product, cubed
1 10 ounce can of Rotel tomatoes and green chilis – do not drain
1 12 ounce tube of Jimmy Dean regular sausage, browned and grease drained
Cube Velveeta and place into a crock pot and turn on high heat (leave it on high for 30 minutes to melt the cheese)
Next brown the sausage completely and then drain the grease.
After it is drained, pour the sausage into the crock pot with the Velveeta and add the Rotel. Turn the crock pot heat to low and cover, stirring every 10 minutes for about 30 minutes.
Stir, stir, stir! After 30 minutes, it should look like this…
And then…pour it over Frito Lay Tostitos Scoops tortilla chips!
