Football season is right around the corner. Are you ready for some footbaaaaaall?
We're not. I actually laughed out loud as I typed that.
You see, my husband and I are a rare breed. We don't watch sports. I know, I know...how utterly un-American of us. Don't hate me. We all have our quirks.
Sure, I was a cheerleader in high school and my husband knows the rules of the game, we just don't get into it like most others we know (namely my mother-in-law who hoots and hollers at the TV like her words are gonna carry those boys right into the end zone).
What I do like about football season is the foooood. There's nothing like a game day spread to make your mouth water. This dip will fit right in, I assure you. Put it on the coffee table in front of the crowd and watch it disappear. I first had it a my sister-in-law's house Holly's house and watched people literally flock around it. The heat is perfectly addicting and you just can't stop eating it. So, so good.
Everywhere I bring it, people ask me for the recipe and are shocked to learn there's only three ingredients. It seriously takes just minutes to throw together, so you should really give it a shot!
- 16 oz pork hot sausage (found in the roll form, like Jimmy Dean)
- 12 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 can Ro*tel tomatoes (Original), undrained
- Brown sausage in a non-stick skillet, breaking it up into crumbles with a spatula until no longer pink. Drain the grease.
- In a medium saucepan, heat the tomatoes and cream cheese over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Heat until the cream cheese is completely melted.
- Add the browned sausage to the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine. A splash or two of milk can be mixed in if you like a slightly looser dip. We like it thick and hearty! Serve with tortilla chips or your favorite dipping chip.

- CROCK POT DIRECTIONS: For a party or game day! After browning the sausage, combine all of the ingredients in a small crock pot over low heat until the cream cheese melts, stirring occasionally. Switch it to warm and you've got nice warm dip for the whole event...that is if it lasts that long!
