Start out by slicing a block of velveeta cheese into small cubes. These will be heated in a saucepan and fully melted into molten cheesy goodness. Then, add the mayo, horseradish, and hot sauce right to the pan and stir everything together. I use Crystal hot sauce, but feel free to go with your personal favorite.

While the spread is still warm, you’ll want to transfer it to your serving dish, or an airtight container if you’re making it ahead of time. Serve it up with your favorite bread or crackers, spread it on a sandwich, or use it as a condiment for grilled meat. There’s no wrong way to enjoy this Cheesy Horseradish Spread!
