    I just want to say that to make a great Con Queso you have to use process cheese such as VELVEETA as it melts smooth and doesn't get lumps as does "real" cheese. Any good cook knows that!!!!!!

    Wow, I agree that previous review is pretty silly. Of course the recipe is telling you to use Velveeta. And why are people rating recipes they haven't even tried yet? This is the best queso I have ever made. It is addicting. Ignore all the previous reviews and make this, you will love it.

    I laughed at the first two reviews. One apparently doesn't know that Velveeta IS processed cheese product and I seriously doubt the second one ever ate queso and knew what they were putting in their mouth. This sounds like a good recipe and I prefer some real substance to my queso so like the addition of cottage cheese for richness, and the pimento and onion for texture. I'm going to try it, but will either forego the canned chilis and use a can of Rotel or use half a can of Rotel with the chilis.

    Best Queso Recipe. Velveeta, a can of Rotel diced tomatoes, salsa to taste. Melt Velveeta in microwave, add Rotel and Salsa, stir, microwave again until hot and thoroughly mixed.

    "pasteurized prepared cheese product" ??? Nooooo, zero stars. I would not make this. I want to cook with real food. I don't want to mix highly processed foods together. Can this recipe be revamped to use real food?

    I don't think this is a good slow cooker recipe. Its easier and quicker to microwave it.
