When it comes to party dips, this Crock Pot Mexican Sausage Dip is quickly becoming a favorite of ours!
Party dips go in phases in our home. They certainly aren’t a daily thing, but we always look forward to when we have enough people coming over to whip one up!
Game Nights with friends, watching the big game on T.V. or hosting a party are all reasons that we like to whip up this Slow Cooker Mexican Sausage Dip.
I’ve been thinking about this dip for quite some time. That’s generally how a recipe starts. I start with an idea, toss it around for a while in my head, talk it out with my husband and then finally make it.
The making it part may sound easy but most recipes take several tries of testing before I get the temperature, length of time and ingredients just how I think they taste best. Coming up with the best flavor combination for this Crock Pot Mexican Sausage Dip has been difficult.
At first I was trying to do a traditional dip – Velveeta, Ro*tel and Sausage. As good as that is, it just wasn’t quite the flavor I was looking for. It tasted good but the flavor was lacking.
Then I decided to skip the sausage, and do a Velveeta, ground beef, Ro*tel & cream cheese mixture. Again, delicious but not quite what I was aiming for.
Finally I decided that instead of trying to find the best combination of ingredients, why not toss everything into my crock pot and see what happens.
So in went all my favorite dip ingredients with the addition of taco seasoning.
Once I tried it, that’s when I knew I had the winning combination. I love how hearty this Crock Pot Mexican Sausage Dip is. You’ve got two pounds of meat mixed with with a yummy, creamy, cheesy sauce.
Add in a little taco seasoning (homemade or store bought) and we’ve just kicked this dip up from delicious to outstanding!
The feedback I got with this combination of ingredients is that it was delicious and definitely a winning recipe. However, several people said they loved the dip, but wished it had more of a kick to it, as they prefer things a bit spicier.
Don’t worry. Not everyone likes a kick. but if you do it’s not a difficult fix!
This dip is easy to adjust to your specific heat scale. You can add in a spicy sausage as well as, or, up the heat in your Ro*tel. My kids think Original is spicy so we usually go with mild. However if you like a kick, then that’s an easy fix.
The other way you can add a little kick to this Cheesy Sausage Dip is to toss in a few diced Jalapenos! The seeds are what make a Jalapeno spicy so add as many or as few seeds as you like! The Jalapenos will also add some great flavor!
If you don’t have a crock pot or it’s busy with another item, you can certainly make this on the stove!
However you’ll want to keep it on low as you eat it.
As with all things with Velveeta, as soon as it gets cold, it gets pretty thick.
This is definitely a dip you want to enjoy warm!
However if this Cheesy Mexican Sausage Dip does get cold, or you save the leftovers for another night, then just pop it in the microwave or back in the crock pot to warm.
It will melt right back into a beautiful dip that you and your guests will love.
This Crock Pot Mexican Sausage Dip is perfect for football parties, baby showers, bridal showers or game nights.
One of the biggest surprises for me was that my kids loved it. My kids are not dip fans. They generally refuse is that my very picky eaters surprised me with how much they liked this Sausage Cream Cheese Dip. What little bit we had left the kids devoured as an after school snack.
If you have a gathering coming up and need a tasty dip, whip this one up.
It’s hearty enough to fill a hungry belly and yet light enough to not make you feel bloated!
