chips and dip for taco night

So here is my contribution to Foodie Friday - I'm not sure if I am posting this right so forgive me please if you see it twice! Foodie Friday is at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ , thanks for hosting!
Tonight was "taco night" at the request (for a week) of my 4 year old, Noah. To go with the traditional taco fare I made a dip for tortilla chips out of some very good fresh salsa from the produce section at Publix, and not so good for you (but delicious) Velveeta cheese.



So I cubed the velveeta and mixed it in the salsa, then heated it about 45 seconds at a time in the microwave, stirring in between. It's very easy to cook too much, so be vigilant.
We all love the Tostitos with a hint of lime, I use them every time I do a mexican style dip or salsa.
I hope you liked this, it's a first try for me - I realized as I put this up that I didn't take a picture of the completed dip! Next time. . .
By the way, it's also great with Rotelle - that canned tomatoes & green chili mixture. Sometimes I add frozen spinach (defrosted and drained). This is a wonderful dip to serve for munching while watching a football game too! Note: the Velveeta can easily overwhelm the dish so be judicious in your use of it!
