It’s officially football season and you know what that means…tailgating, snacks & great food. Even if you are not a football fan, you will still love this hot sausage dip – it’s become an all time favorite at my house!
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.
