Game Day Cheesy Sausage Dip

Cheesy Sausage Dip | Frankly EntertainingSo, Sunday is the Big Game (I can’t believe that no one has trademarked “Big Game” yet, since it’s used about 10 million times a day in commercials this week!). Normally we have a small get together, but this year the game interferes with Downton Abbey, so we might have to come up with alternate arrangements! We only have one tv, and we use a homemade antenna to get about ten channels, so there will be no watching one now, and one later. I know I should be a supportive wife and just watch Downton online, but….! Oh I kid! I’m going to a friend’s house to watch Downton, and I’ll leave Doug to his own devices here!

Today’s recipe is for the perfect dip to take with you wherever you go to watch whatever you’ll be watching! This is a heavy dip, so it needs a heavy tortilla chip, or maybe some naan or pita bread. I don’t think your every day ruffle chip can stand up to this dip. This recipe makes a ton, so it’s perfect for a crowd. If you have one of those mini dipper crock pots, you may want to serve it in that so that everything stays warm. If the mini warmer isn’t an option, you can always reheat in the microwave if there’s any left after the first quarter! Remind me, and one day I’ll tell you a story about the mini warmer we used to have…

I first had a version of this dip when I moved to San Antonio almost seven years ago. Since then, the little piece of paper with the recipe has been sitting in my recipe box. You can make this recipe right before you serve it, but the flavors get a lot better if you make it ahead of time and then heat and serve.

  1. YUM! Perfect for watching football!

  2. @Sara As long as no one’s on a diet, it’s definitely perfect football food!

  3. This sounds delicious. I am a big fan of the basic rotel/velveeta/hamburger dip, so this sounds like a nice step up from that. I too am in a crock pot mood today and am making a chicken chili in the crock pot from a recipe I saw in Sunday’s paper!

  4. I make it without the cream cheese and sour cream. I add spicy sausage. It’s funny how many ways queso can be made. Looks delicious!

  5. My husband would love this! Our church youth group is having a Superbowl party, I think I’ll send this for them. Thanks for sharing!
