Old school fun…

Velveeta salsa dip is one of those “whip it up” old school dishes that’ll be around forever. It’s a no-cook kitchen staple, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spice it up!

Try adding a little jalapeño pepper to bring a little kick to the party. With this spicy recipe (with the chili added at the end), you could create two bowls – mild and hot – to satisfy all of your guests.  Or go for the full bowl with the spiciest basic salsa choice you can find in addition to the jalapeño. It’s a super-quick way to add a twist to chips and dip.
