Rotel/cream cheese/ground beef?
 
I keep seeing this mentioned in people's posts of what they ate. Is this all that's in it?

Thanks!!

A whole stick of cream cheese with the can? Sounds yummy!!

DivaWannaBe 10-04-2009 01:42 PM

I just found the recipe, but don't know how to link - sorry!:dunno:

I am going to make this for dinner tonight - it is getting rave reviews:

Brown 2-1/2 pounds of ground beef, 1/2 package of ground sausage (the roll kind). Drain grease, then add one 10 oz. can of Rotel and one 8 oz. block of cream cheese. Cook until cream cheese is melted.

Sounds like it is worth a try!

I've eaten this once a day for 4 days and I weighed myself this morning and I am down 5 lbs. People had said that this helped with loss, but I really didn't believe it until I saw it for myself! I also added a dash of hotsauce on top before eating.

Tyl 10-04-2009 01:56 PM

yumm... sounds yummy!

Thanks for the recipe. This sounds yummy and sounds like something I can eat for breakfast. I'm so tired of eggs. If it helped someone to lose a little more....woo hooo!!!

Is that all you ate? And what was your serving size? I'm willing to give this a try.

I made this yesterday and it was awesome... I made another batch today and put it in individual containers to freeze. I love finding new stuff that taste great.

Jambabob 10-04-2009 02:57 PM

Lauireninva, what type of hotsauce do you put on it? Do you eat this by itself or with veggies? Sounds like this would be good with romain lettuce cups.

Desertthorn 10-04-2009 03:09 PM

I love this recipe cause I can dump any leftover veggie in it also, just to get rid of the veggie.
Rotel is spicy, but not painfully so.
Also, cumin, chili, or any spice you like might add some extra tang. Its a great play around with recipe

jamistar77 10-04-2009 03:16 PM

Im going to try it too! I love cream cheese! Im trying to think of how many carbs the whole thing has.. I know 8 for the cream cheese if its Phillidelphia, how about the rotel?

I made this dish as well, wonderfulllllll!! kinda messed it up due to not looking it up before i made it tho, used 1 lb gr beef n 1 roll sausage 1 block philly cream cheese n can of tom's w/ chillies-rotel...b/f loved it too! might just cook another pound of beef up n mix to it to make it last longer!:cool:

jamistar77 10-04-2009 03:24 PM

Okay, so One 10oz can of Rotel original has 7 net carbs, according to Free Calorie Counter, Free Diet Plans, Nutrition Facts & Food Diary | ************.com
I think the whole recipe would be 15 carbs, give or take a few.

Yeah, or use crumbled sausage instead of the ground beef. Way better!

Getting_To_Goal 10-04-2009 04:09 PM

Can this be made with just ground beef and no sausage? (I'm not crazy about sausage).

Jambabob 10-04-2009 04:10 PM

babetteq 10-04-2009 04:14 PM

I'm going to see if it's here in canada.... "rotel" you say...hmmm

Sure, you can do anything, but it will certainly not be as high in protein, and the carb percentage will be higher as well. I doubt I would care for the taste, but YMMV!

togee 10-04-2009 04:52 PM

Going to make this tommorrow.thanks for the thread

No, I only ate it for one meal per day (lunch) and portioned out about a cup and a 1/4. I used 2 lbs of ground beef, one roll of sausage, 8 oz cream cheese and a 10 oz can of Rotel. I topped it with this green hot pepper sauce (can't remember the name, but its REALLY hot), just a dash. I ate other foods for my other meals.

When I entered it into ******, I put it in as 1 cup ground beef, 1/4 cup sausage, 1.5 oz tomatoes and 1.5 oz cream cheese, per serving. I wasn't in the mood to enter the recipe as a Custom Food so I just did it manually each time I ate it.

If you can't find Rotel, then just use canned tomatoes and canned green chilis separately.

tamari 10-04-2009 05:15 PM

Del Monte also makes canned diced tomatoes with green chilies. I like heat, so I add a little diced canned chipotles to it, since the rotel/del monte is a little more on the mild side.

Marvin 10-04-2009 05:20 PM

For those that have Aldi stores, they have a version of the tomatoes & green chilies that are as good/better than Rotel, and cheaper.

MsWoods 10-04-2009 05:32 PM

I think I'm going to have to make some this week. My mom used to make a dip with sausage, velveta, and salsa, and this sounds like it would taste similar. I also have been getting disgusted with ground beef so I need a new recipe. I usually cant eat cream cheese but I ate it this week and didn't have a problem. I wish I had the ingredients to make it tonight.

haleybop1 10-04-2009 05:51 PM

I just made this and LOVED it!! Thanks!! FYI, the store brand of tomatoes and hot peppers had 1 less carb per serving.

simply diabolical 10-04-2009 07:02 PM

babette, im a fellow surrey girl (haha) and i made this the other day. i skipped the sausage, used the lowest sugar diced tomatoes i could find, a small can green chiles, and i also chopped up and added pickled jalapenos. its GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. high in calories, but i guess thats to be expected. i got 7 servings out of mind and rounded up carb counts to 5 carbs, 1g fiber per serving. not bad!
