This dreamy Cheesy Sausage Dip is perfect for game day or any day! There's a stovetop and slow cooker version! It’s Super Bowl week and it’s time to get your football-watching spread planned – if you haven’t already.  We love to plan out a menu of amazing snacks and appetizers and spread them out on the coffee table to sit back and watch the game – and the commercials!  I’ll admit that I’m not a huge NFL fan, but I’ll be happy to support any event that gives me an excuse to devour cheesy deliciousness like this Cheesy Sausage Dip!

This dreamy Cheesy Sausage Dip is perfect for game day or any day! There's a stovetop and slow cooker version! My spin on this classic adds cream cheese, garlic powder, and relies on Johnsonville Italian ground sausage as its star.  This is the stove top version, but you can make it in a slow cooker as well.  Even if you make it stovetop, you can also transfer it to a slow cooker to keep it warm.  It’s totally up to you.

To make it, simply brown and crumble the sausage over medium heat.  Be sure to allow it to really brown and get that deep brown color – that means flavor.  Then drain away any grease.

SLOW COOKER:  If you’re going to go the slow cooker route – simply brown the sausage and drain the grease away.  Add the meat, cubed cheeses, drained tomatoes and corn, and garlic powder and cover.  Put the slow cooker on low heat and stir occasionally until then cheeses have melted.  Keep the dip on warm and serve with chips.

  1. This dip looks so delicious, Stacey…and I’m feeling a little hungry right now so it looks even MORE delicious!

  2. Stacey, I’m not a huge football fan – period (should I even say that, living in the South?) – but this dip should find itself right at home just about anywhere! Thanks for what my watering mouth tells me will be a winner!

  3. This sounds so good. It will go into my crockpot for the big game this weekend. Like you I am not a big fan of football, but I do like the commercials. But this sounds like a winner for any time of the year. Thank you

  4. This looks to be the most mouth watering version of rotel/queso that I’ve ever seen. And being a good Texas girl you can bet I have had my share of it, in my lifetime!! Making tomorrow and hoping for a final big win for Peyton Manning.

  5. Made this today was too thick so was glad I saved liquid from rotel tomatoes after being in slow cooker still needed more liquid but is good.

  6. Can this be made ahead of time?

  7. Stacey I have a daughter who cannot eat corn but it is still good without the corn. It is also good with just the cream cheese, sausage and rotel tomatoes. Have you tried that one?

  8. Will this double ok?

  9. Do you mean 2 cans of tomatoes and 2 cans of chiles? Or is there a can of mixed tomatoes and chiles and we should use 2 cans of that? Thanks!

  10. Cannot wait to try this. We have several friends over for the big game and I always try to have something new. Now to check http://www.frugalharbor.com to see if there are any coupons for the ingredients. Thanks!

    Stacey, I made this for Memorial Day. Put the leftovers in a container in the fridge. Last night DH had 3 more warmed up helpings with corn chips while exclaiming “This is so good!” It really is – the cream cheese made it so smooth. Great recipe. Thanks so much.
