Easy Sausage Super Bowl Dip!

>> Saturday, January 31, 2009

Sorry this might be posting a little late. I am telling you things have been hectic!

I promise though that this is the dips of all dips. I haven't written about this one yet because I have been saving it for the Super Bowl: Fort Payne Tailgate Dip. The name originates from my friend Allison who told me of this dip she had at the Fort Payne tent before an Alabama game. Ever since then it's been the best go-to dips for parties. Well that and corn dip

Ok so seriously, this recipe couldn't easier or more affordable; only 3 ingredients and about 15-20 minutes of your time.


  • 1 package of sausage in a tube (I prefer 16 oz. Jimmy Deans Hot Sausage but I can't find it in Manhattan L )

  • 1 package of cream cheese (those 8oz. boxes)

  • 1 can rotel tomatoes (again not something I can find in Manhattan, but any Mexican tomato mix will work)


Warm a skillet to medium high heat and add the sausage carefully; breaking down into small bits so once completed there are sausage crumbles lining the entire skillet. Once there is a good brown color turn down the heat to medium (don't want it to burn!).

While sausage is cooking cut cream cheese block into one inch cubes. This will make it easier to mix in when we add it.

Drain off the excess grease from the sausage into the trash (not the sink!) or into a milk jug. Return the skillet to the stove on medium low heat and sprinkle the cream cheese cubes into the sausage mix. Then add the can of rotel, juice and all. I find that the juice from the canned tomatoes gets a lot of the sausage off of the bottom of the pan.

Once everything is mixed together transfer to a bowl to serve.

You can make this dip in advance and then keep warm in the oven on 200 degrees; it's still just as good.

I will be making this tomorrow and will try to post pictures of the steps, but I promise, this will be the star of the super bowl party!!

This was an absolute hit at our Super Bowl Party. I doubled the recipe and it was a good thing I did. It was still all eaten...and there were only about 10 people there. There was plenty of other food but it was far and away the best thing on the table. I added crushed red pepper flakes just for a little extra spice. I had to give out the recipe to quite a few people. Luckily it was only 3 ingredients so I was able to remember it even after numerous cocktails. Thanks Renee and keep up the good work.

So I didn't get to make this dip for the Super Bowl because I was traveling during most of the game; however, this is one of my very FAVORITE dips! Plus its so easy to make... i would suggests having it for the super bowl party or just for no apparent reason at all!

Evan and Elizabeth, I am so happy that you two have had such great experiences with the dip. It is the BEST.

There is something to be said about 3 ingreidents and a bag of tortilla chips!

Get ready the valentine's day menu is going to be big!!
