A Velveeta Cheese Shortage Before Superbowl?
It’s not a Super Bowl party until someone brings the chili con queso dip. However, if the latest news from Kraft Foods is accurate, you may want to grab that brick of Velveeta sooner than later.
The company didn’t give a specific reason for the apparent shortage, but says that some some customers may not be able to find Velveeta on the store shelves.
One publication quoted a grocery store employee as saying he doesn’t expect to see it on his shelves until February due to a “plant issue.”
Here is the famous con queso dip recipe:
COMBINE 1lb. (16 oz.) VELVEETA®, cut into 1/2-inch cubes and 1 can (10 oz.) RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained, in microwaveable bowl.
MICROWAVE on HIGH 5 min. or until VELVEETA is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 3 min.
