I start by getting my bacon into the oven. That’s my preferred method of cooking bacon so I don’t have to babysit it. While the bacon is cooking I start cooking the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the beef until it’s cooked through and crumbles into smaller pieces.

Cut the Velveeta cheese into chunks and then add to the cooked ground beef. Stir frequently until the cheese melts. You could also do a combo of Velvetta and cheddar cheese. I like using Velvetta because it makes the dip super creamy.

Once the cheese is melted, chop up the cooked bacon. Then add the Rotel and the chopped bacon to the pan of the beef mixture. You can just tell that this dip will have amazing flavors! Serve hot with tortilla chips, or chunks of French bread.

Any dip that can be made in about 20 minutes is a winner!

Once it’s all prepped, I love putting it in our mini slow cooker to keep it warm throughout the game. This dip is perfect for the Super Bowl.   It’s so hearty that it could be used as a meal even. Just keep it in the crockpot and let your guests serve it up as they want.

Ground beef, cheese, tomatoes, bacon, and spices… you can’t go wrong!

Thanks for stopping by my friends!!


  1. I do a similar version of this dip but mine is with a can of Hormel chili instead of the bacon.

    I may try this one next time!

    1. Oh yum Stacy! The Hubster would love that. We do a dip with chili and cream cheese, but ground beef and chili is a meat lovers paradise.
