Anne's Sausage and Cream Cheese Dip - TSLCThis is my daughter, Anne’s recipe. It  is a great dip to make for your next party or just anytime.  Anne and Leigh make it whenever they have friends over to visit.  My entire family is addicted to this dip!  The sausage and cream cheese make it a wonderful addition to any gathering!

1 pound pork sausage (We use Jimmy Dean’s Mild Pork Sausage but you can use hot or mild)
2 (8 ounce) packages Philaelphia cream cheese
2 (10 ounce) cans Ro-tel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (regular, mild or hot)
1/2 cup chopped onion (optional)
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (optional)
Brown sausage, onion and garlic in a skillet and drain.  While sausage is cooking put cream cheese and tomatoes in crockpot on high.  Add browned sausage to crockpot and let cook until cheese is melted and dip is hot.  Serve with nachos, chips, or crackers of your choice.  Enjoy!
(Note: Anne does not add the onions and garlic to her recipe. You can do it either way or you could use hamburger to make this.  You could also add hot sauce if you want it really hot)

  3. I wouldn’t make it with the mild rotel. I did one time and you use a lot of the flavor. I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t love this dip!!!

    I have made this dip for years! And we love it! I put it in a crock pot to keep it warm while we watch football. Glad to know that you like it as much as we do. Happy New Year!

  9. Linda Jones says:

    This sounds awesome. I also do the queso using velveeta, ro-tel, and sausage.

  10. Rhonda Featherston says:

    I am going to try this, cant wait!!

  11. wouldn’t this work well with velveeta instead of the cream cheese. sounds familiar.

    • Karen, the cream cheese gives it a different taste. I don’t put the rotel in mine. I do make the dip using the rotel, velveeta, sausage/hamburger in the crock pot. We only use chips with the rotel dip & only crackers with the creamcheese/sausage dip.

  12. Darla Carey Capriotti says:

    I make the same recipe except I use velveeta cheese…mmm so good.

  13. This dip looks so simple and delicious! And I think it’s so cool you have a daughter named Anne.
