I’m sure you’ve made your own version of this easy, flavor packed sausage dip. If you have, great. I’m sharing my version plus a couple of tips on how to prep it and keep it warm while you watch the game.

Cook your sausage when you have time, drain on a paper towel then store in an airtight container in the fridge until you are ready to use.  WATCH OUT – if you are not careful, others in the house (and you too) will walk by and snatch a piece or two of this awesomeness and you WILL NOT have any left for your dip!

If you’re feeding a crowd, just double or triple this recipe.  It’s so easy since it only has 3 ingredients.  Dump your cooked sausage into a crock pot set on low, add the brick of cream cheese and container of Ro-tel tomatoes & chilies. Check the cooker every 10 to 15 minutes, stirring the mixture as the cream cheese melts.  Once dip is mixed, keep crock pot on warm setting and serve.
