I like serving this easy rotel recipe with tortilla chips but you can also use corn chips or bread, all depending on your preference.

Lobster RoTel Cheese Dip

Yield: 8 - 12 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes

A can of already diced tomatoes and green chilies along with a block of melted Velveeta can be an extra fancy party dip when you add crumbled lobster!



  • 6 oz Water
  • 2 (5 oz) Lobster tails
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt



Prepare the Lobster

  1. Bring 6 ounces of water to boil in a pot. Once boiling, add salt.
  2. 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).
  3. Drain the water and allow the tails to cool for a minute or two in a strainer or colander.
  4. Using scissors, cut the tails lengthwise, spread the shells with your fingers and remove all the meat.
  5. Crumble and/or shred the lobster tail meat.

Prepare the Dip:

  1. Cube Velveeta into large microwavable bowl.
  2. Add RoTel
  3. Microwave on high, stirring every 30-60 seconds until all the cheese is melted. Be very careful that you don't burn it.
  4. Add in the prepared lobster, stir well.
  5. Serve with Tortilla chips.


  1. I like to liquefy the RoTel in my food processor before adding it to the Velveeta, but it isn't necessary.
  2. If you run a wooden skewer through the lobster tails before boiling them, they will stay straight and be easier to get meat from.
