Main Dish Like Velveeta Rotel Dip

I made this last night and it was a big hit at my house. Don't worry if you don't like cabbage... you can't taste it in this dish.

Like Velveeta Rotel Main Dish

1 1/2 lbs hamburger
1 small can Rotel Tomatoes
1 bag Angel Hair cole slaw mix (cabbage)
8 oz American Cheese

Brown hamburger and drain. Add tomatoes and cabbage. Simmer until cabbage is tender, about 15 minutes. Add cheese and mix well after cheese melts.

My family really loved this dish and it is really easy and quick for a work night supper. Also, I think this cabbage would be a good substitute for noodles and spaghetti in other recipes.

That does sound good and easy. Do you remember what size bag of coleslaw mix you used? Also, is that different than the regular Dole coleslaw mix that has shredded cabbage and carrots? It sounds like it might be a finer shred, but I don't think I've seen anything like that where I shop.

Linda Sue... It is a 10 oz bag of cabbage and the brand is Fresh Express. They have it at Kroger and Wal-Mart in my area with the other bagged salads. The Angel Hair is different than the chopped and there are no carrots in it. It is cut long and thin. You might be able to do it yourself with the slicer attachment on your food processor, but it is pretty thin. I prefer it for cole slaw as well. It is also the smaller can of Rotel Tomatoes. I think its also 10 oz.

underhiswing...It is somewhat spicy, but not a lot. Rotel Tomatoes have peppers in them and are pretty spicy, but when you add the other ingredients it tones down. This combination of flavors is really nice. But, if you don't like any heat (from peppers) at all, Rotel has a mild flavor that is not hot at all.

Thanks, cjack1. I'm sure any kind of chopped or shredded cabbage will work, but I'll look for the angel hair kind next time I'm at Kroger.

This sounds yummy. I'll have to give it a try!

I also like the angel hair cabbage -- it is thinner and longer than regular cole slaw blend, and it it just white (green?) cabbage -- no red cabbage and (as mentioned above) no carrots. I use it a lot to put under my chinese dishes (i.e. sesame chicken), and also under chicken parm. Once it is sauted, it really does lose it's cabbage taste.

We had this for diner last night. My store didn't have the Rotel brand, so I used Del Monte diced tomatoes with zesty green chilis, and added a little bit of cayenne pepper. I also couldn't find the angel hair coleslaw, so I just shredded fresh cabbage very fine.
It wasn't very pretty to look at, but oh my was it yummy! DH had thirds! Cabbage is so sweet when cooked this way to just tender-crisp, and the meal was ready in a flash. This is definitely something I'll make again.
Thanks cjack1!

Cap... I agree it isn't the most beautiful dish in the world. It looks like Hamburger Helper, when you use the angel hair coleslaw. This has worked to my advantage with my children, however. My youngest always asks, (with disdain)... "Is this low carb?" She didn't even ask on this dish because she thought it was Hamburger Helper and ate it right up.

It looks like I'll have to shred my own cabbage when I make this. I checked today and Kroger doesn't have angel hair cabbage, bummer.

Dottie, I looked up and down the whole length of the bagged produce section. The only shredded cabbage they had was the Dole coleslaw mix with carrots. They did have broccoli slaw that was pretty fine, but I don't like that as well as cabbage. It might work in this recipe though.

I did find the Angel Hair Coleslaw...I bought several bags. It wasn't with the regular coleslaw mix.

This was very good, but I didnt' have american cheese and used cheddar and it wasn't nearly as good as I am betting it would be with the american. I am going to make this again with the "right" cheese. So, save yourself and don't substitute the cheese!

Radmom... I use the unwrapped sliced American cheese, such as Kraft Deluxe American cheese. It is much creamier than cheddar and I think it would be much different.

I just had to pipe in and tell you all that I tried this recipe. WOW! my family (who is extrememly picky) loved it. We had it for dinner tonight. We did some experimenting and we found numerous uses for this recipe (I doubled the recipe).

My daughter had a great idea (she is 12), we put the mixture on hamburger buns - like sloppy joe mix - they loed it. They coated the bread with a thin layer of sour cream. I know this is not low carb, but for the other members of the family that are not lowcarbing it - it is great.

We dipped in low carb flax chips and the kids had tortilla chips - it was yummy.

We made it into a dorito casserole with dorito chips and cheese - my kids thought it was divine.

We put the mixture into low carb tortilla's and wow was it yummy.

We of course had it plain with a dollop of sour cream.

I think this recipe is so versatile and would have many other uses.

Thank you for sharing!!!


Heather

i made it thinking the kids would like it but i wouldn't - well i LOVED it - so easy and so yummy - i was thinking it would taste good on a salad for a mexican/taco salad?

I made 1/2 a recipe, not sure if I would like it, and made 1/2 a recipe with a more italian flavor, i used tomato sauce instead of rotel, added some garlic powder, mozzarella cheese instead of american, it was good too, but the original was better.

I tried this tonight, and thought it was just ok...and I love cabbage, so I was really excited about making it!

I think the thing I didn't like was that it turned out soupy. Is this how it turns out, or did I do something wrong? I drained the meat after browning, but the cabbage added a bunch of water, just watering down the cheese once I added it. Was I supposed to drain it again after adding cabbage? Help!

Actually, it's the liquid from the Ro-tel tomatoes that makes it soupy. I think if you drained them, it might come out too dry though. You do use the liquid when you make the Ro-tel Velveeta dip that this recipe is named after.

lMT 24... It's not soupy when I make it at all. I add the rotel tomatoes at the same time I add the cabbage and simmer it for about 15 minutes which cooks out most of the liquid. Also, I use the small can of Rotel.

Hope this helps.
