Looking for something to do with your leftover Thanksgiving turkey? I was. We have tons of it. So much, that if I didn’t get creative, a lot of turkey was going to go to waste. I browsed tons of recipes for leftover turkey online, but none of them seemed quite right. As we were getting ready to watch the Georgia game today, I decided to make some dip to snack on. Then it dawned on me – queso dip! We regularly make this dip, but surely it would only be made better by this post-Thanksgiving addition.
1 box Velveeta cheese (32 oz)
1 can original Rotel
1 cup turkey, cut up
Step 1 – Cut Velveeta into cubes. Once cubed, place in a crock pot on low heat.
Step 2 – When cheese is melted, drain 1/2 of the liquid out of the can of Rotel. Add Rotel and turkey to the melted cheese. Stir.
Step 3 – Leave cheese on low heat for at least 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
This dip can get thick, so if you prefer a thinner dip, don’t drain as much liquid from the can of Rotel. If you accidentally drain too much, but still want thinner dip, you could always add a little bit of salsa to the cheese mixture. When I first thought to try this, I wasn’t sure if you would be able to taste the turkey, but the flavor really comes through. I highly recommend this recipe if you have lots of turkey left over. So very yummy.
Since Greenleigh loved this dip, we will definitely be making it again!
