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 at 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 are only three ingredients in this amazing cream cheese sausage dip.  It seriously takes just minutes to throw together, so you should really give it a shot!

HOW TO MAKE SAUSAGE DIP WITH ROTEL AND CREAM CHEESE

Sausage dip with Rotel tomatoes and cream cheese is easy to make! First, brown the sausage in a skillet. Combine the cream cheese and tomatoes in a skillet and heat, stirring often, until the cream cheese is completely melted. Combine the browned sausage with the cream cheese and tomato mixture and you're done! Serve with tortilla chips for dipping. See below for detailed recipe instructions.

CAN SAUSAGE DIP BE MADE IN THE CROCK POT?

Sure! 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!

  1. What could I substitute for the tomatoes?

    1. I'm not sure. The tomatoes have green chilies that add a little kick and the juice from the can helps to thin the cream cheese. Not sure if anything but a can of tomatoes would work.

    2. I always thought of Rotel Dip as using Velveeta as the cheese but this one sounds like a winner! Already, a co-worker read this over my shoulder so now you have two converts *grin*

  9. We serve this at the annual Christmas Party at the VFW. We do it the easy way 1lb. sausage, 1 lb. cheese and 1 can rotel. We get the 3 lb. box of cream cheese at Sam's and we always run out.

  15. Sorry folks...just made this and neither my husband nor I liked it. The recipe says to use a can of Rotel, Undrained. Are you sure I shouldn't have drained it? The dip was a pink color and it was really bland. The sausage tasted good. I had to throw it out because I didn't want to take it to the party we were going to. Not doing this one again...

    1. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it as much as we do! I do not drain the tomatoes. The dip does have a pink hue, that is normal. Usually between the hot sausage and the tomatoes, the dip has enough kick for our family.
