How to make Rotel Dip

Heat olive oil in a skillet or pan. Add vegan ground beef and garlic and fry on high for 3 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, jalapeños, vegan cream cheese, and vegan cheddar. Season with a pinch salt and pepper.

Let the dip simmer on low heat for 5 minutes more, then serve directly in your pan or transfer to a bowl in individual portions.

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for around 4 days, but I have to admit fresh from the pan and hot is best.

Can I freeze this?

As with leftovers you surely can. Let the Rotel Dip cool down completely before giving it to the freezer.

But as I said before I would eat it right up from the pan fresh, whenever you can. It is truly the best experience.
