From party dips to dinnertime.
Rotel is one of the best pantry staples for spicing up a Mexican casserole, adding color to cheese dip, or topping tacos. A can of tomatoes with green chiles is so versatile, and we’re forever thankful that it saves us time we’d spend chopping. Fresh produce is always our first choice, but canned veggies like Rotel are a huge help on busy weeknights. Rotel is one of the best additions to game day dips, and it makes prep so much easier. Although you probably associate it with cheesy dips, it has a spot in plenty of Southwestern dinner recipes, too. With recipes like chicken tortilla soup, taco spaghetti, and our best-loved King Ranch Chicken Casserole, a can of Rotel might be your new dinner savior. Whether you’re on the lookout for an appetizer or a one-dish dinner recipe, kids and adults will love these Rotel recipes. From party dips to casseroles, a can of Rotel can go a long way with these recipes.
