I first discovered this recipe 6 years ago at my high school reunion. My good friend Marybeth Fowler made this dip. I found out today that our good friend Debbie Alcala gave Marybeth the recipe. I could not stop eating it. Recently I took it to a party and it was gone in 5 minutes! It’s a warm dip and I use my little 1 quart crockpot to keep it warm. A small crockpot or fondue pot will work too.
1 pound pork sausage, mild or hot (hot really is not that hot or spicy
1 8 ounce block of cream cheese, room temperature (it melts faster)
Brown sausage and cook thoroughly. Crumble it up as it cooks. Drain off excess grease. Add can of Rotel and melt the block of cream cheese. Room temperature cream cheese melts faster and it’s easier to chunk it up in the pan for faster melting. Serve immediately after the cream cheese has melted. Serve warm. Please excuse the steam in the picture below. The dip was hot!
You can serve pickled jalapeños on the side or chop them up and add them to the dip. Stand back and watch it disappear. Enjoy!
