Chili Con Queso Dip

I had some leftover Velveeta from the Broccoli and Pork Rice Bowl that I wanted to use up, and I love cheese dip. This recipe really spoke to me since it had a little more to it than just Rotel and cheese. It was easy, but really had that extra something with the cream cheese added to it! I just heated it up according to the directions and then keep in a slow cooker on low, stirring every once in awhile.

I made this again, but instead of doing it on the stove first, I just threw everything into the slow cooker. It seems to take a bit longer to get everything melted, but it all works the same in the end!
