Fiesta Cheese Dip Recipe and Review

This weekend I decided to break in my 1.5 Quart Crockpot. It’s blue! After scouring my Pinterest for recipes, I finally found something that I could make in my dorm, was cheap, and I wouldn’t get tired of eating. I decided on this recipe. I had to adapt the original recipe. Since I’m not a fan of fire-y hot spice and I have a budget to follow.

So here is my Fiesta Cheese Dip:

My Recipe


  • 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 of a normal sized onion
  • 1 tsp Mrs. Dash’s Fiesta Lime seasoning
  • 1 10 0z can of Rotel diced tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro
  • 1 Lb Velveeta block


  1. First, I microwaved the ground beef for 3 minutes. During the three minutes I chopped my half of the onion and cubbed the Velveeta.
  2. I then mashed the beef so that is was in small chunks in the crockpot. I added the onion and a teaspoon of Mrs. Dash’s seasoning.
  3. On high heat, the mixture sat and simmered for 10 minutes, being stirred occasionally.
  4. After adding the Rotel (I did not drain the Rotel) and cubbed Velveeta, I slow-cooked the dip for 45 minutes on low heat, like what was recommended.
  5. I stirred the mixture. The cubs were not melting like I expected, so I bumped up the heat to high for 20 minutes.
  6. After stirring periodically, the dip was done and ready to eat!


What a wonderful snacky lunch! Even though Fiesta Cheese Dip does not have any jalapeños, it still has quite the bite to it. I really enjoyed eating the dip and plan on making it again.

The next time I make it, I am going to cook the meat and onions together and I am going to cook it on high heat the entire time.

I think my little crockpot did wonderfully! ! I think I’m going to try something again in a couple of weeks.

What are some of your favorite cheese dip recipes? Do you have any suggestions for my next recipe?
