What is Rotel?

Rotel is a brand of diced tomatoes and green chiles. Adding a can of Rotel to a dish gives it a nice spicy flavor. There are several different varieties to choose from: Original, Mild, Hot, Fire Roasted, Chunky, Mexican-Style with Lime and Cilantro, and Chili Fixings. I saw they just came out with some new flavors: Serrano, Chipotle, and no-salt added. SO many great options!

I usually use Original Rotel. It adds just the right about of heat to a dish. If you are sensitive to spicy food, the Mild variety is a good choice. It will still add great flavor with a little heat. Perfect when you need a kid-friendly meal.

What Side Dishes to Serve with Rotel Recipes

Most recipes made with rotel have a Mexican/Southwestern flare. We usually whip up green salads, Mexican rice, black beans, or Mexican pasta salad. Don’t forget to make some homemade salsa and jalapeno ranch!

SO, next time you are at the grocery store, grab a few cans of rotel and whip a few of these simple recipes! They are perfect for an easy weeknight meal, potluck, or the big game!

  1. I love to use Rotel tomatoes with green chiles to replace chili powder and cayenne. The flavor is so fresh tasting. I haven’t seen any of the newer types but I will check them out. Thanks for the great set of recipes to try.
