Note: Velveeta is in the crackers section, not the refrigerated section with the other cheeses! For this recipe I used ground turkey, I'm not much of a beef eater.
The recipe calls for cutting the Velveeta into squares so it melts better, but I had not trouble melting it as it came.
As the chili and Velveeta melt together, keep on simmer until your ground beef/turkey is fully cooked. Add to the mixture and stir together.
- 16 oz Velveeta cheese
- 1 (15 oz) can Hormel No-Bean Chili
- 2 tsp Paprika
- 1 Tbsp Lime Juice
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper, ground
- 1/2 tsp Cumin, ground
- 1/2 lb cooked Ground Beef (optional)
In a large skillet or large pot cut the Velveeta into cubes, this will make it easier to melt. Mix in the Hormel Chili. When the cheese and Chili is melted and mixed together add the paprika, lime juice, cayenne pepper and cumin. Keep on simmer. If you choose to add ground beef or ground turkey in another skillet add around 2 tbs olive oil, add ground beef or turkey until fully cooked, around 5 min. Stir frequently and add to the Velveeta and chili mixture. Serve with hot tortilla chips!
