A co-worker of mine once brought a batch of fudge to work. The principal ingredient was Velveeta Cheese. Seriously. No lie. One of my buddies tried some, said it was all right and turned green when I told him it was made from Velveeta. We all got a big laugh out of that.
Velveeta and its relatives are much maligned, but nothing makes better Rotel cheese dip than Velveeta. In the South, you can't have a football watching party at home without a slow cooker full of Rotel dip. Up North, they have buffalo wings at every party. In the Southeast, it’s Rotel.
