Hot Cheese Dip

I have this recipe thanks to C’s mom.  It is one of his favorites and his mom and I both fix this regularly during the cold winter months.  The versatility of this dish makes it a keeper.  Serve it at potlucks with chips or crackers or pour some over a baked potato. 

My version is not as spicy as some.  If you want extra heat, use the hot versions of the tomatoes and sausage and more onion.  You can always add some garlic as well.  It’s great either way!


2 lbs Velveeta cheese product

1 can Rotel tomatoes (mild)

1 lb pork sausage (mild)

1 lb ground beef

1/4 cup chopped onion


Cut up the cheese into cubes and place in the crock of a slow cooker.  Pour the tomatoes over the cheese.


Brown the sausage in a skillet over medium heat until all the pink is gone.  Drain on a paper towel lined plate.  Add the onions to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, for about 3-4 minutes or until browned.  Add the onions to the slow cooker.

Brown the ground beef in the same skillet until cooked through.  Then add the sausage and beef to the slow cooker.  Cook on low for 4-5 hours or until all of the cheese is melted.  Serve with chips or crackers.
