Sausage & Cream Cheese Dip & Weekend Potluck #16



where I share a recipe I've posted before...

This is a simple & delicious treat for any occasion and only has THREE ingredients!

This great recipe has several variations...

Substitute salsa for the rotel tomatoes...use part cream cheese/ part Velveeta, or all cream cheese -

It's simple to put together & very creamy. Make it ahead, refrigerate, then rewarm in the microwave...keep heated in the crockpot.

Whatever works best for you!!


1 lb. pork sausage, mild (use your favorite kind)
2 - 8 ozs. pkgs. cream cheese, room temperature
(or use half Velveeta)
1 can Rotel tomatoes with green chilies, mild or hot
(or use 1 c. salsa if preferred)

Brown the sausage; drain fat. Place cream cheese in microwave safe bowl along with drained tomatoes (or salsa). Heat in microwave on medium power until melted. Stir until blended. 

Combine with sausage and place in crockpot to keep warm. Choose your favorite chips or veggies to serve with the dip.

Yield: about 6 servings
