Southern Secret

I've lived below the Mason-Dixon line for nine years now. I went to a private girls high school for four years before moving to Arkansas, so these last nine years have been a real eye opener to the male species. For starters, I didn't realize how simple guys were - or for that matter, how complicated women were. Here is the best explanation I have heard:
Men are like a switch. On the top it reads "On" and the bottom is labeled "Off". Women are a bit more complicated. You see a wall. This wall is covered from top to bottom, side to side with multiple buttons, knobs, dials, switches, and toggles in various sizes and colors. None of which are labeled.
And ladies, I have found the switch that controls the southern boys. Give it to them and they will be like warm, melted butter. They will sing your praises, treat you with respect and keep coming back to you for more. Sometimes with presents! It's not sex either. You're not going to believe it when I tell you, and I have yet to meet one who doesn't get excited at the mere mention of it. Rotel. Rotel is a can of tomatos and chiles. So, how do you freak boys out with it? Mix it up with some cheese, preferably Velveeta. It has been my experience that when the guy sees it, his eyes light up as though all of his Christmas dreams have come true. It's also been the one dish that ensures compliments. I had no idea what 'Rotel' was when I came down here. And the dish is commonly referred to as 'Rotel', not 'cheese dip' as us Yankees would say. The Rotel website has a bunch of recipes listed, including one for the 'Famous Rotel Cheese Dip'. I cook mine in a crock pot/slow cooker.

Wow. Good work. I've yet to pin down the exact recipe to win a Wisconsin boy, but I suspect it also contains cheese.

And sex.
