Hello friends!  I'm sure everyone is busy Christmas-ing this week, but I wanted to pop in and share one of our all time favorite party food/appetizer recipes with you, Cream Cheese Sausage Dip.  It could not be easier, and I promise your guests will literally eat it up!

Here's all you'll need:

1 pound breakfast sausage, cooked, crumbled, and drained
3 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1 can Rotel tomatoes and green chiles
water if desired

Simply mix all ingredients in a crockpot or double boiler and heat until the cheese is melted, stirring occasionally.  A bit of water can be added after cheese is melted to thin it a little if you think it's too thick. Just add water, stir, and eye it until it's the consistency you want.

Serve with tortilla chips and watch it disappear!  It's a nice little switch up from the usual Velveeta and Rotel cheese dip.

We hosted all of the ministers at our church for a party on Sunday night, and I was repeatedly asked for the recipe- everyone loved it.  As a reference, I tripled the recipe and it filled my 4 quart crockpot.  We served around 30 people and just had a little bit left over.  We'll have a large family party on Christmas Eve where I plan to serve this as well.  It's a great go-to recipe to have on hand!
