3 Ingredient Sausage Cream Cheese Dip

You only need 3 ingredients for this party dip! There’s an optional fourth ingredient, and of course you can add other things if you prefer.

  • Sausage: Use 2 pounds of breakfast sausage (I like Jimmy Dean’s but you can use any brand). I recommend using half regular and half hot/spicy. You could also use all spicy or all regular depending on your taste.
  • Cream Cheese: Cream cheese makes this dip super creamy! You could also substitute Velveeta if you prefer.
  • Rotel: Rotel tomatoes add the perfect flavor and spice to this cheesy dip!
  • Lime Juice: This ingredient is optional, but recommended. A spritz of lime juice really balances out the flavor!
