I made this recipe and everyone loved it! It’s pretty easy too.
Velveeta Chicken Rotel Spaghetti
1 rotesserie chicken
1 can Rotel Tomatoes with Diced Green Chiles (undrained)
1 green bell pepper (diced)
1 small white onion (diced)
Velveeta Cheese Loaf (16 oz.) – cut into 1 inch cubes
12 oz. package Thin Spaghetti Noodles
Cook bell pepper and onion in 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter until almost done.
Cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions.
Combine chicken, pepper and onions with the cooked spaghetti noodles while they are still hot into a slow cooker. Add cubes of Velveeta cheese to the mix and stir until everything is combined and the Velveeta cheese is completely melted.
Cook for 2 hours on low stirring occasionally.
If you prefer to cook in the oven:
Preheat oven to 350°.
Spread chicken noodle mixture into a 9×13 baking dish.
Bake until bubbly, about 30 minutes.
