Crock Pot Sausage Rotel Dip
A cheese rotel dip with cooked ground sausage made with minimal ingredients and warmed up right in the crock pot makes a great appetizer for football season, holidays, pot lucks, or tailgating parties!
I have an awesome giveaway for you! Today, myself and 15 other fantastic blogger friends of mine are getting together and giving away the best gift of all – money to go on a shopping spree! You all have the opportunity to win this $200 Amazon gift card in honor of Super Bowl parties and celebrations.
Speaking of Super Bowl, what are your favorite appetizers to eat for the big game day? Mine is the obvious – hot DIPS. I’ve had the Rotel and Velveeta cheese dip a million times, and as much as I love that, I wanted something a little more substantial and creative (oh, and with real cheese!). This version has cooked ground sausage, cream cheese, Colby Jack shredded cheese, and Rotel mixed right in. It is so creamy and delicious.
The best part about this type of dip for a party appetizer is that you can leave it all right in the slow cooker and keep it warm all night – this way it stays creamy and perfect indefinitely. Just throw a bowl of your favorite tortilla chips right next to the crock pot on the counter and people can dig right in. The Scoops chips will work really well for this! I couldn’t find any in the store the day I shopped for the ingredients for this Rotel dip or I would have definitely used those. This dip is so easy to throw together. The “hardest” part is browning the sausage beforehand and that takes less than 10 minutes to do. This is great for more than just Super Bowl parties – I was thinking it would be a huge hit during the holidays or even a pot luck. Who doesn’t love a good cheesy dip?
Get ready for the most addicting dip ever…

Thank you @Ashley for co-hosting this great giveaway! I was contacted by Kristi and I am the winner! Yeah! I love following your blog and collecting all of these fantastic recipes. I will be stopping by often.
Two reasons this is the best Rotel & sausage dip:
1) You use Colby Jack Cheese instead of that awful Velveeta cheese.
2) The 2 cream cheese additions sounds great.
Now for my question:
If you do not have the option of WARM, What other option can I use?
Just keep it on low! But keep stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn on the sides.
