For sports fans, autumn might just be the best time of the year. For example, college and pro football are in full swing, basketball is just getting started, and the exciting Major League Baseball playoffs are here. If you can’t see the action in person, it’s also fun to watch the games on TV. When you do this, you should have some delicious food on gameday. An amazing Rotel dip will enhance your viewing party.
Chips and dip are almost synonymous with watching sports. If you’re like many fans, you can’t get enough of it. One variation is Rotel dip with beef. You can make this hearty, filling dish in a crock pot. It consists of ground beef, cheese, and Rotel tomatoes.
With this recipe, you can add some variety and include additional items. It only takes 20 minutes of prep time and cooks in the crock pot for two hours and 20 minutes. It serves 12 people, so everyone with you watching the game can enjoy it. You’ll want to have some corn chips handy to dip in this fabulous creation.
First, get together the necessary ingredients. The good news is that you may already have some of these on hand. However, if you don’t, you shouldn’t have any trouble tracking down the items. Here’s what the recipe calls for:
- 1 pound of ground beef
- 16-ounce package of Velveeta cheese

Assembling the Ingredients
Next, it’s time to put everything together and get started. You’ll want to brown the ground beef on a skillet over medium-high heat. After you do this, make sure you drain the fat. Once you have done this, place the beef in the crockpot. Then, cube the Velveeta and place it on top of the beef.
Pour the can of tomatoes over the mixture and sprinkle in the garlic powder. Remember to stir the mixture until it is combined well. Lastly, secure the lid over the slow cooker.
You should cook it on high for at least two hours. Ensure that the cheese has melted and the dip is hot to your liking. As you start to serve the dip, keep the cooker warm, so the dip doesn’t start to get cool. You can then enjoy this amazing dip while you watch the big game.
Watching sports on TV needs to include some delicious food. Make this dip at your next viewing party with family and friends.
