A Garden Salsa Velveeta Dip
When do your garden tomato plants first start bearing tomatoes? Late spring? Early summer? There’s nothing like making salsa from your own organic garden. If you have an abundance of tomatoes, make a salsa for your family and extra to give as gifts to your family and friends.
You’ve probably mixed hot sauce with Velveeta. How about coming up with your own sauce by combining tomatoes, squash, zucchini, peppers, and/or any other vegetables from your organic garden?
I mixed a little of my homemade garden salsa into the remainder of Velveeta cheese I had on hand. If you like cheese dip, do try this one. It is delicious and spicy, and it’s hard to stop once you delve in.
Velveeta Dip with Salsa
- 1 Red Chili Pepper
- 2 Jalapenos
- 1 Can Evaporated Milk
- Chili Seasoning
- Cilantro (to taste)
- Garlic Powder
- Green Onions (1/2 of a batch)
- 1-2 Cups Slow Cooker Homemade Salsa (see recipe)
- 1 Lb Velveeta
- Chop peppers in blender.
- Add onions and seasonings with peppers in the blender.
- Melt Velveeta with the evaporated milk into the slow cooker.
- Mix in the salsa, peppers, onions, and seasonings with the Velveeta.
- Serve over your favorite chips.
Mix up any vegetables that you like from your garden into your blender. Make a salsa, then add some of the salsa to Velveeta or whatever cheese dip you prefer. The veggies are a good nutritional addition for a dip. Your kiddos won’t even realize they’re eating healthy veggies!
Velveeta and veggies, broccoli with cheese, and cauliflower with melted cheese make tasty meals. If you can skip the cheese and just eat vegetables, go for it. Many times, we drown good veggies with sauces and miss out on their natural flavors.
Add a spoonful of sugar and a tad of butter to vegetables when cooking them. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on. They taste good that way. Try it for awhile, and you might just get used to fresh vegetables without the extra cheese.
Whether or not you want to include Velveeta in the meals for your family, you can save this garden salsa cheese dip for special occasions. It’s easy to make and tastes SO yummy.
