Not only will you enjoy how simple this recipe is, but it’s absolutely delicious. My boys are obsessed with the gooey goodness of the Velveeta cheese and the mixture of the lobster and RoTel. It’s heavenly. I like serving this easy rotel recipe with tortilla chips but you can also use corn chips or bread, all depending on your preference.

More RoTel Recipes: (ingredient)
- 6 oz Water
- 2 (5 oz) Lobster tails
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
Prepare the Lobster
- Bring 6 ounces of water to boil in a pot. Once boiling, add salt.
- Turn heat down to simmering and add Lobster tails. Allow them to simmer for approximately 5 minutes (1 minute per ounce of the largest tail).
- Drain the water and allow the tails to cool for a minute or two in a strainer or colander.
- Using scissors, cut the tails lengthwise, spread the shells with your fingers and remove all the meat.
- Crumble and/or shred the lobster tail meat.
Prepare the Dip:
- Cube Velveeta into large microwavable bowl.
- Add RoTel
- Microwave on high, stirring every 30-60 seconds until all the cheese is melted. Be very careful that you don't burn it.
- Add in the prepared lobster, stir well.
- Serve with Tortilla chips.
- I like to liquefy the RoTel in my food processor before adding it to the Velveeta, but it isn't necessary.
- If you run a wooden skewer through the lobster tails before boiling them, they will stay straight and be easier to get meat from.
