I make this every year for my Big Game parties and everyone raves over it. You can make it as spicy or as mild as you want.

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt processed cheese in a slow cooker on Low. Cook and stir pork sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes; drain excess grease. Mix sausage into processed cheese in the cooker, stir in salsa, hot sauce, and jalapeno peppers. Cook for 2 hours; serve hot.

Cook's Note:

If you want a more mild dip, you can use mild sausage and salsa and cut the hot sauce down to 1/4 cup. I wouldn't completely get rid of the hot sauce because it really adds to the flavor.

My husband and two boys' favorite dip. I usually don't bother adding the additional jalapeno peppers. One full recipe will fit up to the top of my small Lil' Dipper crockpot. If I throw all the ingredients in as I'm cleaning up the breakfast dishes it's usually ready by lunch. Read More

Made this for super bowl. Some of my guest would have given it 4 or 5 stars but I just thought it was ok. In my experience nothing special ever started with 2 lbs. of velveeta. Had a processed aftertaste to it. Read More

For this last Super Bowl I used a maple sausage to give it a sweet and spicy flavor. It was amazing I really recommend trying it. Read More

This dip had really good flavor but was kind of runny. Very hard to dip with tortilla chips. I kept the slow cooker on for a lot longer than 2 hours to try to thicken it up. It did eventually but not according to the recipe. Read More

This is my favorite dip to make when we have game day parties. Everyone always raves over it. I usually leave out the sausage as we have vegetarian friends and it still is great! Read More
