I wish I knew who to give credit to for this delicious, creamy concoction. All I know is that someone served it at a party once, proclaiming it to be the best 3-ingredient dip ever. And who am I to disagree?
This is my go-to dip for just about any sporting event viewed on TV. It's inexpensive to make (under $10), easy to put together, and always a crowd pleaser. I recommend doubling the recipe if you have over 6 people, and half of them are guys. Also, be sure to grab the sage sausage. Plain would probably work, but I think the sage is the "secret" ingredient in this dip.
Super Bowl Sausage Dip
1 tube sage sausage
1 can Rotel*
8 oz cream cheese (reduced fat is just fine)
1. Brown sausage over medium heat, breaking into crumbles with a spatula until cooked through.
2. Drain sausage crumbles and return to pan.
3. Add Rotel and cream cheese, stirring until cheese is melted.
4. Serve with a bag of chips and watch it disappear.
*note: If you live in a place where there is no Rotel, I am so sorry for you. No really- we Texans could simply not survive without it. It's possible that you could substitute one can of diced tomatoes mixed with a small can of chopped green chilies. Or you could just email me and ask nicely for me to send a few cans. I just pity the person who has to go through life never experiencing the greatness that is Rotel.
Do you have a go-to dip or party food that you love to serve on game day?
