Our Favorite Velveeta Cheese Recipes

Even though our Test Kitchen likes to make everything from scratch, there are some store-bought shortcuts that are too good to pass up (we’re looking at you, rotisserie chicken!). Whether you save time with a refrigerated pie crust or start with a jar of pasta sauce, store-bought ingredients can often save dinnertime. Velveeta cheese is one of those old-school ingredients we’ve been buying for decades. These Velveeta cheese recipes make the most of that nostalgic block of cheese. Whether you’re in need of a classic Velveeta cheese dip recipe or you’re looking for the secret to the cheesiest mac and cheese ever, you’re in luck. One of the best things about making a recipe with Velveeta is that you know the kids aren’t going to protest a bite of hot potato salad or mac and cheese with chicken. Our Test Kitchen even found a way to dress Velveeta up with recipes like our Pumpkin Beer-Cheese Soup and Sausage-and-Cheese Grits Quiche. Go ahead and drop that Velveeta in your grocery cart: You’re going to love these recipes.
