Ro*tel is a brand name. Basically, its diced tomato pieces with a little diced green chilies thrown in. You can get different heat levels, or just plain w/no chilies.

This was very tastey....The recipe kind of confused me...I had the beef in a bowl, and the cottage cheese, sour cream mixture in a bowl. I had my rotels, tomato paste, onions etc. in my skillet but the recipe didn't say what to do with the tomato mixture...So I took the name of the dish into account and mixed everything together, so hopefully thats what was meant.

Give it a try it was very tastey :)

Do those of you who have tried this think it would work with 1 C of ff/sf plain yogurt in place of the sour cream? I have everything except the sour cream and this sounds great!!

this meal is looking really good, it is baking in my oven right now as a matter of fact. one thing i did to change it was add a layer of pinto beans to the bottom. i was making a pot on the side and thought what the heck. i mashed them up a little bit to make a base i guess. hopefully it will not mess up the dish.
