Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Velveeta, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 16 oz bag Nacho Cheese OR Toasted Corn Doritos Brand Tortilla Chips (that what Grandma says)
  • 2 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/2 cup sliced pitted ripe olives

Instructions

  • In a medium sauce pan, combine cheese, onion and milk. Cook over low heat, stirring until process cheese spread is melted - straight from the recipe card ;)
  • Place tortilla chips on a large platter and pour melted cheese mixture over.
  • Top with lettuce, tomato and olives.

Microwave Instructions

  • In a 1/2 qt casserole, combine cheese, onion and milk.
  • Microwave on medium for 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Assemble as directed above.

My Notes

  • This is the recipe right off of Grandma's recipe card. I like things a little spicier. If I were to make this again, I would add 1/2 cup of hot salsa to the cheese and eliminate the onion and the milk. But that's just me.
