SAUSAGE AND CREAM CHEESE DIP

Annes Sausage and Cream Cheese Dip

This is my daughter, Anne’s  favorite recipe. This Sausage and Cream Cheese  dip is great 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!  You could easily double this recipe for a large group and it keeps well refrigerated for several days.

Sausage and cream cheese dip will quickly become one of your favorite dips to serve family and friends.

1 pound pork sausage (We use Jimmy Dean’s Mild Pork Sausage but you can use hot or mild)

2 (8 ounce) packages Philadelphia 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 crock pot on high.  Add browned sausage to crock pot 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)

  1. This dip is soooooooooooo good. I have made it several times using Jimmy Dean sausage, cream cheese and entire, undrained can of hot Rotel. Dip bites first few but your mouth gets used to it. This is the best.5 stars

  2. Sierra Jenkins says:

    Can I use ground beef instead of sausage? Looks like a great recipe.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, you could use ground beef, Sierra.

  4. 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!!!

    1. oops you lose a lot of the flavor.

    2. Rita Thomas says:

      My family would not eat it with anything BUT the mild. LOL

  5. Hi judy, I was hoping that you could teel me if ann’s sausage and cream cheese dip can be maded ahead of time and then rewarm . i would like to make it for your health and safety meeting at work .

    1. We make it with just the cream cheese & sausage. It’s good on the town house pretzel crackers or any kind. I’ve made it in the mornings and carried it to work. It sits on the table(we don’t warm it) and is eaten over the day.

  6. Deb White says:

    I had this yesterday as a Super Bowl treat and leftovers for breakfast. I just passed it on for a low carb treat as well.

  7. Susan Hannah says:

    I’m thinking I need to try this TODAY!!! Sounds soooo yummy

  8. simpleandseasonal says:

    Made this with organic and it was great!!!

  9. Michele Cavey says:

    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!

  10. Linda Jones says:

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

  11. Rhonda Featherston says:

    I am going to try this, cant wait!!

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

    1. 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.

  13. Darla Carey Capriotti says:

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