Chili's Queso Dip

This is one of the "Top Secret Copycat" versions of chili's queso.  It's not quite as good, but when you're having a craving and don't live near a Chili's, it really hits the spot.  I use a little less spice than it calls for, and the juice from a whole lime.  This is also excellent if you substitute cream cheese for the Velveeta.

16 ounces Velveeta cheese
1 (15 ounce) can Hormel no-bean chili
2 teaspoons paprika
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1. Cut the Velveeta into cubes.
2. Combine the cheese with the remaining ingredients in medium sauce pan over medium heat.
3. Stir frequently until cheese melts then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minute.
4. Serve with hot tortilla chips for dipping.
