Recipe: Spicy Sausage Dip

Yup, that's not a picture of spicy sausage dip.  This recipe, while thoroughly yummy, is not that pretty to look at.  Instead I thought a random picture of my little one was cuter (at least to me it is).

Almost every family I know has this type of dip at family functions and get togethers.  We had a small crew over to our house at the last minute on Halloween and I needed something fast, easy and crowd pleasing to fix.  I had planned white chicken chili and cornbread but the addition of 4 more people to our already group of 8 had me worried I didn't have enough food.  This dip was the easy solution and feeds quite a few people with only 3 ingredients. 

Spicy Sausage Dip
16 oz. spicy/hot sausage
16 oz. reduced fat cream cheese (not fat free, yuck!)
2 (10 oz.) cans of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies (I use mild)
tortilla chips, veggies or whatever else sounds good for dipping

  1. In a skillet brown sausage and drain fat.  
  2. Add cream cheese and tomatoes to skillet and heat until thoroughly melted and combined.
  3. Transfer to a small crock pot and serve with chips, etc.
In my experience this has always been a great dip for the guys in the crowd.  They're always the ones who tell me how good it is.  I think because it has a little kick to it.  This would be a great recipe to bookmark for a Superbowl party, too.
