Yep, an oldie but a goodie. I have made this for years. I also have, on occasion, left out the sausage. Also, instead of using salsa I sometimes just put a can of Rotel (diced tomatoes with chilies) in. What I do is put all ingredients into a small crock pot, turn on low and allow folks to dip at their leisure. Just a stir or two every so often keeps this in good shape. Read More

Classic queso that we have enjoyed for years and years. We have always called it Jose Dip, after a Houston chef. We usually double the recipe in a crock pot on warm or low and the dip disappears at every party we have. Try hot breakfast sausage for more of a kick. You can also do 1/2 sausage and 1/2 ground beef. We have always used Rotel, one can of regular and one can of Extra Hot to 2 pounds of Velveeta. Hot and spicy...but we're Texans, what can I say...that's the way we like it! Yummy, yummy, yummy. Best with margaritas and homemade flour tortilla chips. ;) Read More

This was sooooooo good! I cooked the sausage and placed that in a small crockpot. Then, I added the cubed cheese and about 3/4 of a jar of medium chunky salsa. I stirred it together and let it cook, stirring occasionally, until completely melted, (it took about 1-1 1/2 hours). We really loved the taste of this dip and it was so simple too! Thanks for posting. :) Read More

Delicious! I used two cans of Rotel tomatoes and green chiles, both drained. After I combined all of the ingredients, I also threw in a handful of chopped green onions and fresh cilantro and it was amazing! Read More

Pretty tasty! My only complaint is that it was a little runny, next time I would drain at least half the juice out of the can of Rotel. I only had 8oz of Velveeta, so I used cream cheese to replace the rest. That tasted great and cut the spiciness of the sausage, which I appreciated. Thanks! Read More
