My husband LOVES Ro-Tel Tomatoes. LOVES THEM. Like he should have married them instead of me love. He'll put Ro-Tel in almost anything that calls for tomatoes, peppers or green chiles. But most importantly in his world its the uniting of Velveeta Cheese and Ro-Tel Tomatoes that makes the planets align. If you said Peanut Butter & Jelly he would say Velveeta & Ro-Tel. I think he thinks it is a food group in and of itself. Or at least a condiment. Most people would have salt, pepper and ketchup. He has Ro-Tel. So what happens when you turn him loose with my mother's old recipe for gourmet potatoes? He omits the cheddar cheese and adds Velveeta and Ro-Tel. Then he thumbs his nose at my mother and takes a giant bow. Actually he didn't do that, he served them to her, she loved them and now we've got an updated twist on an old family favorite.
