Sausage Cheese Dip

I think we need a moment of silence, yes?

Sausage Cheese Dip

Yes.

I’m such a stupid lover of cheese dip, it’s stupid. Stupid stupid stupid. I made this last Saturday for the Arkansas/Alabama game (embaaaaaaarrassing) and – oh, did I host a party, you ask? Oh no. The cheese dip was for me. All two pounds of it. Fooooor my face. Aaaaaand only my face.

Stupid.

And can I tell you I’ve eaten it everysinglesolitarywhichwaypossible for nearly a week?

Sausage Cheese Dip

So stupid.

I’ve licked it off my fingers, gloriously draped it over my morning eggs, dumped it into lunch tacos, smothered English muffins with it, hoovered it straight from a shoehorn, and one time I even went sausage bobbing in it.

I even made up the stupidest lunch with it that I’m going to show you next week. I still can’t even think about it it’s so stupid.

Sausage Cheese Dip

Buuuut, when you stop and about it though we’re covering all the major food groups. No listen.

* Crumbled and browned delicious spicy Italian sausage for the protein.

* Chopped fresh tomatoes for the fruit.

* Velveeta and cream cheese for the dairy.

* Scallions, chiles and cilantro for the . . . vegetables (shhhh).

* Chips for the grains.

Baby girl ain’t so stupid NOW, whaaaat!

. . . Oh.

Sausage Cheese Dip

Did you want to stop real quick and notice how long my nails are getting? Because you can if you want.

Did you want to notice my pinky fingernail extending past the skin a little? Because I’ll totally let you if you want.

Did you want to mistake my hands for Barbra Streisand’s since they are pretty much identical now? Because you’re absolutely welcome to if you want.

Sausage Cheese Dip

This stupid cheese dip was pretty much never not in my face for the last 6 days.

Sausage Cheese Dip

Best week of my life.

Sausage Cheese Dip:

What it took for 1. WHAT? IT…okay, 4:

* 1 pound Velveeta cheese block, cut into cubes
* 1/2 (8 oz) bar cream cheese, cut into cubes
* 1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
* 1/2 cup chopped cherry (or whatever you have) tomatoes
* 2 scallions, thinly sliced
* 2 Italian sausage links, casings removed
* 1/2 cup cilantro leaves

In a small crock pot, combine the cheeses, chiles, tomatoes and scallions. Put the lid on it and turn it on. Let it sit for seriously like an hour until it becomes smooth and wonderful and melty and oh yes.

In the meantime, brown your sausage in a skillet. Right at the end, dump it into the cheese dip, along with the fresh cilantro. Stir stir stir. Stick your finger in it and taste it. Stick your finger BACK in for a second taste and telleth not a soul.

Serve with a bunk ton of chips.

    I just had a moment of silence where I dreamnt of finishing this bowl myself.

    I hate how right Velveeta can be.
  4. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite September 21, 2012 at 8:57 am #
    Delicious! I would have totally made that party for 1 instead of sharing the dip!

    Good gracious I want this!

    I didn't think cheese dip could get any better. But it just did.

    Velveeta is the way to my heart! Mainline this to me, stat!

    I love blue corn chips. And want to annihilate an entire bag with this dip.
  9. GingerMae September 21, 2012 at 10:52 am #
    I think it would be perfectly acceptable to blow off all your chores, put on stretchy pants, and eat this while sitting on the couch all weekend! And I would do just that, if my fresh-from-the-dryer jeans weren't already feeling a little too snug already!

    Oh my goodness! Our friends used to make this and I had totally forgotten how obsessed I was. Thank you for bringing this back into my life!!

    omg anything that starts out with 1 pound Velveeta reminds me of 1986 and potlucks and homestyle parties were everything was amazing and comforting and I totally want to make this, sans meat! Looks awesome Bev!
  12. Vita @ Juicer Depot September 21, 2012 at 12:44 pm #
    I am making this the next time we have people over for the Bears game. Mmmmm does it look good!
  13. Katie @ Blonde Ambition September 21, 2012 at 2:25 pm #
    Totally covers all of the food groups. I like the way you think!

    This is the perfect dip to serve during football season but really I think its perfect for one like you said.
  15. Debra September 21, 2012 at 4:32 pm #
    Good golly,Miss Mollie...I have been wanting to buy these Hatch green chili tortilla chips, and NOW I MUST. I'm "Hatching" an evil plan for the next card game with the girls....thanks Bev for the cheesydesiciousnessrecipe. Please don't tell anyone I bought Velveeta "cheese food" as I really don't want to know what's in it....kind'a like Spam. :)

    Wow, I love a good cheese dip and yours looks amazing, Bev!!

    Now this is one tasty sounding hot cheese dip! It is too bad that I need that Italian sausage that I picked up this morning for soup... I have a feeling that I am going to need to pick up more Italian sausage tomorrow for that soup.
  18. Gerry @ Foodness Gracious September 22, 2012 at 10:58 pm #
    This dip should be running for President! It would win easily...I'm a serious dipper myself so I need to stash this somewhere for a rainy day..or tomorrow :)
  19. Julie @ Table for Two September 23, 2012 at 8:39 pm #
    these would be perfect for football season and so perfect for my mouth and face right now!
    • Gloria February 2, 2013 at 4:28 pm #
      I understand the need to eat this everyday anyway. I left half the recipe home from a party so I would have some for me until I could shop for more Velveeta.
  20. Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel September 24, 2012 at 9:21 am #
    Tooooootally need this in my face.
  21. kelley {mountain mama cooks} September 24, 2012 at 12:18 pm #
    I want a straw. And to be left alone.
  22. Karly September 25, 2012 at 9:37 am #
    Quit looking at me while I lick my computer screen. Also, did you seriously just put real actual vegetables in this cheese dip? Like, ones that didn't come from a Ro-Tel can? You're my hero.
  23. Terri @ that's some good cookin' September 26, 2012 at 2:30 pm #
    LOL on the Streisand hand thing. I clicked over to the picture and found that it was Jennifer Aniston pretending to be Barbara Streisand. Sooo...WOW, your hands are identical to Jennifer Aniston's hands pretending to be Barbara Streisand's hands. Is this like the six degrees of Kevin Bacon, except with hands? hahahahahaha! Aside from the above jocularity (Father Mulcahy word from M.A.S.H.), this dip is so perfect, I could weep. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a recipe with no Rotel. Plus you added cream cheese. I'm doing the wave in honor of your culinary breakthrough.
    • Bev Weidner September 26, 2012 at 2:35 pm #
      OMG, I didn't even realize that was Jen A. pretending to be Barbra! She looks JUST LIKE HER. And my hands do too. Sort of. Not really.
  24. SeattleDee September 30, 2012 at 6:58 pm #
    This looks SO over-the-top delicious I'm ready to ditch my previously favorite cheese dip for your recipe. Instead of sausage I've added a can of no-bean chili to the mix (when no one was looking, of course). OMG, did I just say that out loud?
  25. Erin October 1, 2012 at 5:39 pm #
    well, some things are simply too delicious to share with anyone. And this looks like it might be an instance of this case. I am going to make this and I MIGHT share it with my boyfriend, depending on how nice he is this week. Erin- ekcantcook.blogspot.com

    I make game day snacks for my husband every Sunday for the football games. I don't really like football...I'm only in it for the food. And THIS is definitely going to be on the menu this week.
  27. Kristan October 25, 2012 at 11:08 am #
    Bev - I desperately want to make this dip, but I don't have a small crockpot, only a big one! Can I make this on the stove? I'm afraid if I let it sit for an hour on the stove, the cheese will burn. Any recommendations?
    • Bev Weidner October 25, 2012 at 12:14 pm #
      Hi, Kristan! You know, I think if you keep the heat on low to medium low, you should be good! Small saucepan, lower heat, regularly checking on it, you should be alllll good. Let me know how it turns out!
      • Kristan October 25, 2012 at 12:20 pm #
        Thank you! I'll give that a try :)
  28. Siri February 6, 2013 at 2:18 am #
    Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one who eats two pounds of this by myself! Your like a kindred spirit! Thank u for making me feel better about my life choices :)
  29. Amanda February 8, 2013 at 2:33 pm #
    Hi I also only have a big crock pot, I was wondering if it would be find if i just used it? Also how much would you say it makes anyway?
    • Bev Weidner February 8, 2013 at 2:50 pm #
      You can totally use the big one! I think it made 3 to 4 cups in the end. Once everything is all melted down, something like that. You should be good!
  30. Julie February 24, 2013 at 5:47 pm #
    I'm thinking on top of spagetti noodles.....
  31. Wendy H July 27, 2013 at 12:24 pm #
    I have laughed so hard thru the above description. I can almost hear your voice! Besides my thoughts go right along with yours...lovely hands, eating the whole thing yourself, sharing this in the first place. Nice lady! I'm making it even as I right...sighh. Smells divine. So who wanted to lose 10 pounds...or maybe more...anyway. It's Summer and i can wear shorts into the ocean instead of a swimsuit!
  32. Mellie July 31, 2013 at 10:04 am #
    Sounds/looks amazing! Breakfast sausage v. Italian...thoughts?
  33. Deloris February 8, 2014 at 10:51 pm #
    Hi, I check your blog daily. Your story-telling style is awesome, keep up the good work!
  34. Alicia September 21, 2014 at 7:35 pm #
    This dip is a favorite with us! Followed the recipe the first time, I opted to used Rotel diced tomatoes w/ chiles. The next time we used chorizo and it was AMAZING! I'm sure there are many great variations that could be made with this recipe.
  35. Diane November 8, 2015 at 1:21 pm #
    I'm a cheese lover as well, but even if that were not true, I'd try this just because your presentation was so funny! Thanks for the laugh, and a new recipe to eat more cheese…….
  36. Haley February 17, 2017 at 4:54 pm #
    How long does it take to melt in a crockpot and on low or high ? I'm doubling the recipe .
    • Bev Weidner February 21, 2017 at 7:43 am #
      It won't take too long! If you're doubling the recipe, high is fine - an hour or so? It's really up to you!
  37. Suzette March 26, 2017 at 10:43 am #
    I didn't have cilantro but added a 1/2 cup of fresh chopped spinach. It was delicious
