  • Using a Dial Instant-Read Food Thermometer:
  • An instant-read food thermometer measures the temperature of a food in about 15 to 20 sec. It is not designed to remain in the food while it is cooking, but should be used near the end of the cooking time. For accurate temperature measurement, the probe of the thermometer should be inserted 2 to 2-1/2 inches deep into the thickest part of the food. If measuring the temperature of a thin food, such as a ground beef patty or boneless chicken breast, the probe should be inserted through the side of the food.
  • Special Extra:
  • Reserve remaining sauce to serve over grilled steak as part of tomorrow night's dinner.
  • Ro*Tel is a product of ConAgra Foods, Inc.

These were very good, a little messy, but good! Will be having again. I used left over Queso sauce from our Super Bowl party. I ate mine open-faced. Very good and very easy.
