Tortilla chips or crackers to use for dipping
Pickled jalapeño slices, optional

1 8 ounce block of cream cheese, room temperature (it melts faster)

1 can Rotel tomatoes with green chilis, I buy original but if you want more heat, buy the hot/spicy, DO NOT DRAIN

1 pound pork sausage, mild or hot (hot really is not that hot or spicy
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.
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!

Sounds scrumptious! I’ve never used Rotel tomatoes, but will definitely pick some up. I’m a real sucker for dips, and this one calls to me – loudly!

You will love this dip. And I am telling you, it would be great over biscuits!

This reminds me a lot of the dressed up Rotel (Velveeta) dip I grew up on. I never would’ve thought to use cream cheese. Bookmarked!

Adam, this dip is addicting. I took it to a 4th of July party and it was gone in 5 minutes. It was sitting next to a platter of shrimp. It really would great served over biscuits too.
