How Do You Pronounce Ro-Tel?
This is the first I’ve heard of this: one of my co-workers asked me if I knew how to pronounce “Ro-Tel” properly. I told him that I didn’t know that there was another way to pronounce it!
He told me that he has heard people pronounce it “RAW-tel”, instead of “ROW-tel”.
My favorite Ro-Tel is the mild, and I use it in several dishes, from my baked beans to my chili and gumbo. Yes, in my gumbo (Aunt Jackie taught me that one!!)
What I do know is that I am hoping that I get invited to a party for the Superbowl this Sunday, and that there is a bowl of “RAW-tel” or “ROW-tel” or “raw-TEL” (or however you want to pronounce it) mixed up with some of that hard-to-find Velveeta cheese. I would love to dip some Fritos in that, me!
