Cheesy Chicken Pasta

     I love cheese dip. The Velveeta & Rotel dip is probably my favorite homemade dip. It's fast and easy. In five minutes, you have a snack for unexpected guests. Or a side for your tacos. Or a sauce for your pasta. I know Velveeta isn't healthy. At all. But, every once in a while it's ok to splurge. 
     I made this cheesy delicacy last night as a topping to our build your own bean taco or nacho bar. I knew we would have a lot left over so I had to come up with a way to use it up. This turned out even better than I had hoped. J said I could make it every week if I wanted to. I don't think I'll do that, although I wish I could eat things like that every week and not have to worry about it. 
    Like I said, we used what we left from our dinner last night, so if you want to snack on the dip before or after dinner it would be ok. Also I used garden delight penne to add in some veggies to this otherwise unhealthy dish, but you could use any kind you like.

1 lb Velveeta
1 can rotel
1/2 lb chicken, cubed
1/2 box penne
Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning
  • Boil pasta according to package directions.
  • Saute chicken sprinkled with Mrs. Dash.
  • Cube Velveeta and dump rotel on top. Microwave for 5 minutes, stirring after 3.
  • Drain pasta and combine with chicken. Pour cheese dip over the top. Stir to combine.


  1. I don't think I've ever had left over rotel and velveeta dip :) If I do, I'll remember this one, it sounds GREAT!

  2. not a fan of velveeta but this does look yummy!
