Jimmy Dean Sausage Dip

20140201_134727

Prepare to burn your tongue. Well… if you are like me. Because this dip is SO GOOD and I did just that feasting on some chips full of it last night.

This dip is so easy. 3 ingredients, 3 steps, time to eat.

1 lb Jimmy Dean Sausage (do not get a bargain brand; you will thank me)
8 ounces cream cheese
2 cans Rotel Tomatoes with chiles

Get out a sauce pan , turn it on medium high, and cook the pork sausage until it is thoroughly cooked all the way. You can drain the meat if you want, but I don’t find that necessary. There is not an overwhelming amount fat that appears.

Once the meat is cooked, add the cream cheese and tomatoes to the pan. Mix everything around and let it all start to melt together.

Keep stirring the meat mixture till everything is incorporated. One important note…. DO NOT SEASON ANYTHING. Do not season the meat or the steps after. There is enough flavor and salt in all the components to give you the taste you want. You do not want to over salt this.

Once the cream cheese has melted, and the tomatoes are happily hanging out with the pork, simmer on medium high for about 7 more minutes to thicken it up.

Serve with your favorite tortilla chip on game day or at parties. This dip also freezes really well. I stuck mine in a portable container in the freezer, so I can place it in a dish on game day this Saturday and just reheat it. I promise your friends will love it.
