Hot and Spicy Sausage Dip


Today I'm sharing a great hot appetizer that people LOVE! This recipe, like most of the recipes I share, takes just a few ingredients, ONLY THREE in fact - cream cheese, a can of Rotel and one pound sausage. It's so simple to make...so good.  





My friend from Maryland, Mrs. T, shared this recipe with me years ago. This is the friend that shared the great tip for Swiss cheese in lasagna and gave me the Black-Eyed Peas & Sweet Corn Salsa recipe.  When she gave me this recipe, she told me when she serves it, it's the first thing to go at parties, "people love this stuff!"  When I make it, what I found is that women love this dip, but men devour it!  

If you're looking for an appetizer everyone will enjoy, I highly recommend giving this recipe a try at your next gathering!




Hot and Spicy Sausage Dip

Ingredients
  • 1 lb of Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage (hot or regular - use your favorite bulk sausage brand)
  • 10 oz can Rotel, undrained (Original, diced tomatoes & green chilies)
  • 8 oz cream cheese 
Directions
In a large skillet, cook sausage, breaking up into small pieces (like taco meat) until fully cooked. Drain all excess fat.  Add Rotel and cream cheese, mix until well blended and heated thoroughly. Place in a serving dish, serve warm with you favorite tortilla chips or Fritos Scoops. 

Tips 
  • For less spicy dip, use regular sausage.
  • This is perfect for small crock-pots, keeping it warm while serving. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Cheers!

Mmmm. I have to confess to making one similar...but with velveeta! Oh luscious faux cheese. Anything with sausage and rotel and cheese has to be good!!

My sister-in-law learned to make this while going to Mississippi State University. It was their junk food of choice. They called it "Crack Dip". Well, it is addictive... ; )

I use Regular, not Hot. This dip is delicious and always a crowd pleaser.

I use Regular sausage instead of Hot. It's a delicious dip and always a crowd pleaser.

I make a dip that is similar to this, however we add some garlic and seasonings. It's delicious and always good to make in double batches for a party! Otherwise there will be someone that doesn't get any.

This dip is great when I make it I add chili powder for extra flavor and broil it in the oven for a few minutes.

I call this crack dip!! So addicting. I use a pound of regular sausage, 2 cans of rotel (1 mild and 1 original) undrained and 2 8 oz cream cheese and it comes out perfect!

My sister made this for our family once she got it from a firehouse she was working at. We call it the amazing dip!

If you are pressed for time use 1 bag jimmy dean turkey sausage crumbles. Already cooked, healthier and not as greasy. This is amazing stuff. I bring to potlucks and it is one of the first things to go.

My friend gave me this recipe. That's all I make now and it is less expensive than the Velveeta way. It is the best!
