Delicious Sausage Dip

One of my favorite people shared this recipe with me years ago, and almost every time I go to visit her, we share this dip as an evening snack.

It is a staple in their home, and it never gets turned down when made.... And when you start to fry the sausage, the smell fills the house, and everyone mosey towards the kitchen in anticipation of the finished dip.

With only 3 ingredients, it is a snap to put together, and the only other thing you need is a bag of tortilla chips, or if in your part of the world you can't get tortilla chips, you could substitute a cracker, or baguette.

Sausage dip:

1. pound of good quality ground sausage
2  10 ounce cans of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies
1  8 ounce package of cream cheese

In a skillet, Brown the sausage until cooked thoroughly.  If there is an abundance of grease, drain the sausage to remove the grease.

When fully cooked, add the 2 cans of tomatoes with green chilies, slightly drained.  You can leave some of the juice.

Stir to distribute, and heat through, then add the cream cheese and heat just until the cream cheese is melted, do not over cook.

Serve hot with tortilla chips.

It is also great made with hot sausage, and the spicy/hot Rotel tomatoes for those who like spicy things.

If you can't find the Rotel tomatoes, you can substitute canned diced tomatoes, and add a can of diced green chilies to it, I think it is 4 oz sized can.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do, it makes me hungry just talking about it.

This would be wonderful made with Reindeer sausage.... something you can get if you still live in Alaska..... sometimes I miss it more than others...

I have to say, it is very good. You can also put it on a flour tortilla.
