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
- 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
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.
- For less spicy dip, use regular sausage.
- This is perfect for small crock-pots, keeping it warm while serving.
