I need to know what things you peas make with velveeta. I never buy the stuff, but a recipe I used at thanksgiving needed it so now I have an entire brick of the stuff in my fridge and need ideas to use it up. I felt like there were good recipes I had wanted to make before but never had any on hand. Now I have it and can't come up with any ways to use it up! Thanks

If it's unopened, donate it to a food pantry or soup kitchen.

Melt a 1lb brick and mix it with a can of Rotel - makes a yummy dip. Add browned sausage if you like.

This. You can use salsa instead of Rotel and browned hamburger instead of sausage. Keeps well on low in a crockpot. It's good as a dip of spooned over a baked potato.

Here's a family favorite that my Dad created!

Hamburger Rice

1 lb. Hamburger
Onion, chopped fresh or dehydrated
Lawry's seasoned salt
Chili powder
1 can stewed tomatoes
2 cups Minute Rice
12 slices of Velveeta off the block
Hot Sauce or Ground red pepper (if desired)

In a sauce pan, add stewed tomatoes, cut smaller and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling. Once boiling, add 2 cups of minute rice and take off of heat to cook. In a frying pan, cook hamburger, chopping into small pieces. Add onion. Cook through. Once rice is done and hamburger is done, mix together in the frying pan. Top with a layer of Velveeta cheese slices. Cover until melted. Put Doritos on a plate. Spoon out Hamburger Rice over Doritos. Top with hot sauce or red pepper if desired.

We also use it for grilled cheese sandwiches and for cheese on hamburgers.

Another favorite is to cook macaroni and use Velveeta and some milk and butter to make really good mac n cheese!

Thanks for the ideas! I think that cheeseburger soup was one I was thinking about before so I will for sure making that! The cheese is already open so I can't donate it. Thanks again. I'm also thinking about some Mac and cheese now too!!

We just made this last night. I rarely buy velveeta cheese even though I love it. It's just a pain to cut up for sandwiches.

You can use some velveeta, chicken broth, and frozen veggies to make like a cheesy broccoli.cauliflower soup.

When I was little and stayed with my grandparents, my grandma would cube velveeta and cut up an apple, and I'd eat "cheese" and apples for breakfast.

I love it with the sausage and rotel added. It is rich but tasty.

Macaroni and Cheese

One recipe white sauce (bechamel) -- see below
1 pound Velveeta "pasteurized prepared cheese product"
1 pound macaroni

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Fill a large pot 2/3 full with water. Boil water; add macaroni and cook until done. Drain.

Cut Velveeta into 1" cubes. In a saucepan, mix together the white sauce and Velveeta. Heat, stirring, until Velveeta is melted. Add cooked macaroni and mix gently until macaroni is coated. Bake 1/2 hour.

Makes 2 1/2 - 3 quarts

Bechamel (White Sauce)

Bechamel, is a very simple sauce which is used as a base for other sauces.

4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk

Warm the milk in a small saucepan (or it can be warmed in the microwave -- just warm it, don't boil it). Set aside.

In another saucepan, we're going to make a roux. What's a roux? It's a mixture of equal parts flour and butter.

Melt the butter. When the butter starts to foam, mix in the flour, stirring quickly until the flour is blended into the butter. Cook over low heat 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly.

Slowly add the warmed milk into the roux, whisking continuously to avoid lumps. Simmer over low heat, stirring continuously, 15 to 20 minutes, until smooth and thickened.

Note: At this point, you can add white pepper and salt, to taste, if you wish. (I don't.) Also, since my mother didn't warm the milk before adding to the roux, I never have, either. It's always turned out fine.

My kids love it when I use it in my macaroni and cheese so I do add it for big family dinners. I do a regular bechamel sauce and add cheddar and whatever other cheese sounds good then I add a good chunk of the Velveeta.

My secret tip to keep the mac & cheese from drying out when baking is to put it in a casserole dish and cover it tightly with foil. I then bake til bubbly and only remove the foil for a couple of minutes at the end of the baking time.

This is a family favorite of ours. It is frequently taken to funeral luncheons in my small Southern hometown.


1 med. size fryer, boil, skin, debone
2 can cream of chicken soup
1 lb. Velveeta cheese
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1/2 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. onion, chopped fine
1 package of Doritos, crushed.

Preheat oven to 375.
In saucepan, mix soups, cubed Velveeta cheese, Rotel tomatoes, and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and then add onions.
In a large bowl, mix chicken, soup mixture and all but 1 cup of Doritos. Then put this in a 9"x13" pan and top with last cup of Doritos. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees, until bubbly. Remove foil and cook until top is browned.

Tried the Cheeseburger Soup you recommended and omgosh it was good!

The only changes i made was using 1 pound ground turkey and I substituted 1/8 cup
of cornstarch for the 1/4 flour to make it gluten free and I used slightly less Velveeta
because of the calories. Also, I left out the dried parsley and basil.

Thank you!!

Easy broccoli and cheese soup

2 cans chicken broth
1 can rotel
2 pkg.frozen broccoli
8 oz pkg Velveeta

Cook first 3 ingredients for 8 minutes then stir in Velveeta. It is so tasty! I use the mild rotel because the original is too spicy for us.
