  • 16 ounces Velveeta Cheese
  • 1 cup milk (preferably Half & Half if you have it)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 15-ounce can no-bean chili
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • juice of 1 lime juice (about 1 tablespoon)
  • tortilla chips for serving


  • Cut velveeta cheese into cubes. (optional. If you don't, it will just take a little longer to melt, no biggie) Add all ingredients (except for tortilla chips) to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours or on high for 1 hour.
  • Stir until everything comes together. Cook on low for 30 minutes - 1 hour (As much time as you have before serving)
  • Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!


Pro tip: for restaurant-quality tortilla chips, bake your favorite tortilla chips in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes and serve warm!
