Although I love Texas and Queso and especially recipes that make things so you do not have to buy the item I am shocked when folks feel that I am too much of a snob to enjoy a good block of Velveeta ! Velveeta, you goota love her !
Homemade Velveeta Cheese
1 1/2 lb grated Cheddar cheese, divided into 3 equal parts
1 1/2 cup almost boiling water, divided into 3 equal parts
1/2 cup plus 1 tbls. instant dry milk, divided into 3 equal parts
1/2 ea envelope unflavored gelatin (1 1/2 tsp.), divided into 3 equal parts
Line a 8x4x2 loaf pan with plastic wrap. Put 1/2 cup water, 3 tbls. milk, and 1/2 tsp. gelatin into your blender. Whir until the gelatin has dissolved. Add 1/2 lb of the Cheddar cheese and whir until blended. Pour this deluxe mixture into a Pate Terring or loaf pan. Repeat this procedure two more times. Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight before unmolding. Makes 2 Lbs. Add a can of Rotel Tomatoes and you have a great and traditional Texas Queso ! Yum !
