Easy Super Bowl Dip

The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and chances are you might be watching it--or eating while it plays in the background anyhow!  (That would be me... who's playing again??  Sadly, I'm serious.  Ask me about hockey, though, and I'm golden!!  I can only focus on one sport at a time!)  

This super-easy dip recipe is perfect for a Super Bowl party or any type of gathering.  Our family makes it all the time--and I mean all the time.  It only has three ingredients, so you can pick up everything at the store in a hurry without having to reference your recipe book.  

Let me know what you think.  If you whip it up this weekend, I have a feeling you will bring an empty bowl home--I'll be surprised if there's any left!!

Enjoy the game--and the commercials!  :)

You only need these three ingredients:  

Cream Cheese (I use 1/3 fat; I don't recommend fat free)

Jimmy Dean Sausage (I use reduced fat if I can find it)

Ro-Tel (I use Mild because I'm a big sissy)

Brown the meat.  There's no need to drain any grease because there really isn't any if you use reduced fat!

Add 11 oz. cream cheese.  (one block + 3 oz. from another block)

Add Ro-Tel and heat until combined.

Ta-da!  It doesn't get much easier.  When people ask you for the recipe (and I bet they will!), they won't believe that's all that goes into it!

I hope you like it.  I'm not a huge fan of sausage or cream cheese, but I have to drag myself away from this stuff!  And the guys in your life will love it--for sure.

The cream cheese will start to thicken as it sits, so you could possibly serve it in a fondue pot to keep it warm or just stir it up now and then--or even reheat it in the microwave briefly... that's if it lasts that long, of course!  :)

Jimmy Dean Sausage (12 oz. tube)

11 oz. Cream Cheese (I use 1/3 fat.  One block + 3 oz. from another block)

10 oz. can Ro-Tel (I use Mild but I don't like-a-the-spice)


Brown meat.  Add cream cheese and Ro-Tel.  Heat until combined.  

I serve with Baked Scoops, but for me, the chip is just the vehicle for the dip!  :)  I just want the crunch, so I go with the healthier chips...but my mom says she might as well eat cardboard.  To each their own, I say! 

I hope it's a hit!

What quick dip recipe do you like?   There are so many yummy versions!
