Shrimp and gooey cheese, is there anything that could be any more delicious than that? I didn’t think so either. This is why one of my favorite dips is the Shrimp RoTel Dip Recipe that combines both of those along with RoTel Tomatoes.
The gooey goodness of Velveeta cheese is the perfect mixture with shrimp and RoTel. It almost sounds too good to be true. Luckily, this is a reality. Combining these three delicious ingredients will make you an easy RoTel recipe that everyone will be begging for time and time again.
The Shrimp RoTel Dip Recipe is something that you think you’d find at a fancy restaurant. Luckily, you can make it at home with very little effort.
Even if you’re busy picking up the kids from practice, need to take the baby to a doctor appointment and still have errands to run, this recipe will be easy to impress the family with.

More Shrimp Recipes:
- 6 oz Water
- 2 pounds (32 ounces) Shrimp
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
Prepare the Shrimp:
If you use a package of precooked salad shrimp, they are ready! Just drain them.
If, however, you buy or catch fresh shrimp, they will need to be cooked and most likely chopped.
Boiled or steamed works just fine. De-head, de-shell, and de-vein them. Then, chop them into small pieces.
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 shrimp, 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.
