Queso Dip

Yesterday we got together with Nate's family for Sunday dinner. We had taco salad. One of Nate's brothers asked if I'd make some queso for the meal. After searching online for some inspiration, this is what I came up with. Just wish I had remembered to take a picture!

1 (32 oz.) package Velveeta
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, mined
1 can Rotel tomatoes (I used mild)
1 1/3 cup milk
1 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. taco seasoning
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Once melted, add bell pepper and onion. Sautee for a few minutes until softened, about 5 minutes. Then add garlic and sautee for one minute. Next add cumin and oregano and cook for another minute. Then pour in Rotel tomatoes and taco seasoning, mix well. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for a few minutes. While it's simmering, cut your Velveeta into cubes. Add Velveeta cubes to your crock pot and the pour in the vegetable mixture. Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally until Velveeta is completely melted. Once it's all melted add the milk and stir until milk is incorporated. If you like a thicker consistency add less milk and add more milk for a thinner consistency. Keep on low heat until ready to serve, stirring occasionally.
