Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Yield 12 servings


  • 16 oz . Velveeta Cheese
  • 1 cup milk (or half and half for an even creamier version)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (15-oz) can no-bean chili (like Hormel)
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • tortilla chips, for serving


  1. Cut Velveeta cheese into cubes. Add all ingredients to the slow cooker (can also be heated on the stove without a slow cooker). Cover and cook on low for 2 hours or on high for 1 hour.
  2. Stir together and keep on low until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I happen to have a 1.5 quart slow cooker that worked perfectly for this. You can use a bigger one, it just won't fill the slow cooker as much. This can also be prepared on the stove top. Just heat up the ingredients and enjoy!
