This should serve 8 to 10, but I usually double the recipe because it goes quickly. I'm always asked to make this for every gathering. It's a family favorite.

Oh my GOD! This is so excellent I cannot even tell you! I knew it would be good (anything with a whole block of Velveeta Cheese is bound to be good!) but I made this for a Christmas get-together and my guests couldn't leave it alone. Everyone ate so much of it that we had to postpone dinner! The recipe makes quite a bit so if you're only making it for a few people you might want to pare it down a bit. I added a can of crab meat that I had in the cupboard and it couldn't have been better! You can really play with the ingredients add more green onion other seafood or whatever you want. This dip cannot be beat if you are a seafood lover! Read More

This recipe was awesome!! I served it for a Mardi Gras party. Instead of 1 lb of cheese I added 2 lbs. And I also added shrimp and crab and served it in bread bowls. It was completely gone by the end of the night!! Read More

I did love the taste of this dip. I served it with frito scoops. It had very good flavor. Only problem I had was that it wasn't a very thick dip. It was runny and it spilled on everyones shirts. Also this recipe makes a lot. I cut the recipe in half and still had some leftover after serving 20 people. But I would make it again this time less milk and more cheese I guess. Read More

I made this recipe but with a new twist. I added twice the Velveeta half a pound more crawfish cut the crawfish into thirds so that it went further and then stuffed it into hollowed out pistolettes. I then slathered the pistolettes with butter and baked at 350 until lightly browned. Absolutely fabulous!! This can be served as a appetizer side bread or even a main dish! Definitely a crowd pleaser! Read More
