Barbara's Velveeta Chili Dip/Soup


My Ex-Sister in law whom I adore and consider more of a Sister than anything gave me this recipe about 25 years ago. She always made it for events and parties and I crave it to this day.

We were swimming together today and started talking about what else but food! We discussed this recipe and how each one of us make it, and before you know it I decided to have it for dinner tonight!

I pulled out my old yellowed recipe card and made it her way and it is such comfort food. We have eaten it as a dip and a soup, it is very versatile and did I mention YUMMY!

You can substitute what you have on hand.

Here is what ya need!

1/2 onion diced
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 to 1 soup can milk
1 small Velveeta brick
1 cup cheddar
1 can fire roasted green chili's
1 can diced olives
(diced chicken - optional)
1 to 2 burrito sized flour tortilla
I like to add some mexican hot sauce (Cholula)

Put it all together in a crock pot or fondue pot and let it warm up to a simmer and fully melt
Tear the burrito shells up into bite sized pieces and put them into the cheese and stir till combined. I like to let it work for awhile with the burrito pieces till they melt into the mixture

*I also like to saute the onions first for a milder flavor

**Serve with corn chips OR my favorite Frito Scoops!

I'm all about the recipes where you can substitute whatever you happen to have handy! And I don't know about you, but I think cheese makes a recipe almost certain to be good!

Dang that sounds good!! Great job swimming, one of the best exercise there is, not that I would know personally.

With all that Velveeta this has got to be fantastic. And with hot sauce and a flour tortilla, I'm all over this one.

I saw the advertisement about his velveta cheese, and I always wondering on how to make that dip. Thanks to you, I don't have to search any more. I can just make it from your recipe. Thanks Cheryl :)
