Hamburger Broccoli Dip

Here's a recipe that falls into the "how can this not be good?" category. Lots of gooey cheesy deliciousness melted with beef and broccoli and served with chips. Sounds good to me! It's an easy do-ahead that you can just pop into the oven right before your guests to arrive. It's perfect for a casual hang with friends, or an elegant soiree as you ring in the new year. Mix up a batch of your signature drink, and boom, there's your party!

3 cups frozen chopped broccoli
1/2 small onion, minced
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound Velveeta, cubed
1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies
Corn chips

Cook broccoli according to package directions; drain and set aside.
In a small skillet, cook beef, onions, and salt over medium heat until onions are soft and meat is no longer pink; drain. Add cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Add tomatoes and broccoli; mix well. Serve with chips.

I like to serve this with "scoops" chips because then you can really dig in and get all the chunky goodness with each dip.
You can also add just regular diced tomatoes, but also add a few shakes of crushed red pepper flakes, just to give it a little poke.
If you'd like to add MORE heat, go for it! Add a chopped jalapeno or any favorite chopped chilies.
