This dip is so good and brings back so many memories. The first time I had it was with friends in high school and it is still one of my favorites. Just a few ingredients in this Cheesy Rotel Dip with Beef Recipe and it makes an amazing appetizer for any get-together or game day!


You will Need

Diced Velveeta on cutting board.
  • Velveeta Cheese
  • Salsa
  • Ground Beef
  • taco seasoning


Ground beef browned in skillet

This dip is so simple to make! You will need to brown your ground beef and drain.

Tip: By ground beef in bulk and brown. Drain and freeze cooked crumbles in quart-sized freezer bags. It makes recipes like this and quick dinners (tacos, sloppy joes, etc.) even faster to throw together.

Salsa and cheese in small crockpot

Place the ground beef, diced velveeta, salsa, and taco seasoning into a small slow cooker. I recommend one of the small dip pots, but any small slow cooker will do. Cook on high for two hours or until the cheese is melty.

Stir and serve with chips or veggies

Gluten Free

This dip is gluten free as long as you use gluten free taco seasoning. Serve with gluten free chips or veggies.


This dip is perfect for gameday, pool side, or any party. I love it for just a fun weekend with the family.

Obviously, this Cheesy Rotel Dip is delicious with Tortilla Chips, but also great with some cut-up veggies like small fiesta pepper (if you love fiesta peppers you should try this recipe too! )

I like to keep it in the small dip crockpot even for serving. It keeps the dip warm and gooey. Just set the crockpot to warm or low.


If there is any uneaten dip store it in the fridge in an airtight container. Microwave or return to the crockpot to reheat.
