Oh my gosh, we love cheese dip in my house hold. I’ve made the tried and true original version of Velveeta and Rotel since I was kid. That’s the one my mom would always make. You know, back when microwaves gained their popularity. (Ok, now I’m showing my age.) Velveeta melts so easily in the microwave. It was quick, easy, and you never had to worry about it burning. Who am I kidding. I still make it to this day. But, at the same time, who doesn’t like a kicked up version of a classic? I do, I do! Especially when a crockpot is involved. I love using the crockpot because you can set it, forget it, and it’s ooey gooey and melted to perfection when you’re ready to eat.
I scored this Kicked Up Crockpot Velveeta Cheese Dip recipe a few years back from my amazing sister in law, Ashly. (She loves me and let’s me share.) I remember tasting this cheese dip for the first time and guessing one ingredient right off the bat…cumin. I maaay have a slight love affair of cumin. Actually, I really, really, really LOVE cumin. It’s one of my all time favorite spices. If you’ve never tried cumin before, now’s the time.
