I love an easy appetizer or dip recipe (party food — I basically really just love party food!). Two of my all-time favorites are jalapeno popper dip and deviled eggs, but nothing quite beats this easy, three-ingredient sausage cream cheese dip. You read that right, it just takes three ingredients to make this show-stopping dip, which is great because that makes the recipe easy to memorize for when everyone is asking you for the recipe!
Making this dip is easy, you’ll brown your sausage (bulk sausage, not links) in a skillet and then drain off the grease. Then, add your cream cheese (I recommend cutting it into cubes first to make it melt faster), and a can of undrained Rotel (original or mild, depending on your preference… we like original for a little bit of added heat) and stir everything together over medium-low heat until all of the ingredients are well combined and your cream cheese is melted. Then, just grab your chips and start dipping. It’s really that easy.
This sausage cream cheese dip is nothing short of absolutely addicting. My husband ate nearly the whole pan of it completely by himself and was still asking for more, and I think that you’ll find yourself just as hooked after just one bite.
