My sister, Morgan, and I have been spending quite a bit of time together lately. One thing we both love to do is EAT! She has recently lost 30+ pounds, and has lost all her baby weight, plus some, while I have not lost the last 5 pounds of baby weight. Grrr. Anyway, we still take part in our favorite past time. Recently, she spent the night with me and Riley and we made this dip.
Oh my, was this ever great. I have always made cheese dip using 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, 1 lb of ground beef or sausage, and velveeta cheese. My “rotel” dip has never been my favorite. It’s to velveeta”y” for me, or something. Now, don’t get me wrong, I will eat it, and eat plenty of it. It just doesn’t taste that great the next day and I always have a bunch leftover.
Those days are over with. I found this 3 ingredient recipe on OurBestBites.com and knew I had to try it out. Morgan and I whipped this up between supper and bath-time, and let me tell you IT’S AWESOME. To start, it’s 3 ingredients! And velveeta isn’t one of those 3! Yes!
OBB used cream cheese instead, and I love cream cheese!
1 12-oz pkg of cream cheese
1 12-oz pkg sausage
1 cup salsa
Brown the sausage. Drain grease if needed. Cut the cheese into little blocks and add to pan with sausage. Add salsa and heat until cheese is melted.
And that’s totally it. Of course, we topped it with shredded cheddar cheese, but this dip will taste fine without it.
So it’s no more velveeta for me. This will be my go-to party dip from now on!
