Rotel Dip with Sausage

(4 customer reviews)




This Rotel dip with sausage is an amped-up version of the familiar Rotel and Velveeta dip, and only takes a couple of extra steps to make. Not only does adding sausage stretch the dip but it also takes it to another level of flavor. 3 ingredients is all you need. Serve with tortilla chips or anything you like for dipping.


  • 1 pound premium bulk sausage
  • 1 pound processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (such as RO-TEL® Original), undrained


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, breaking up sausage with a spatula as it cooks, about 10 minutes. Drain sausage and return to the skillet.
  2. Add Velveeta® and RO-TEL®. Reduce heat to medium and cook until fully melted and combined, about 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. For a thinner dip, add a splash of half and half in the last 5 minutes of cook time. Serve immediately.

    I made this Rotel Dip with Sausage for a football watch party, and it was a huge hit! The spicy sausage adds a nice depth of flavor that pairs perfectly with the creamy cheese and tangy tomatoes. It’s easy to prepare, which is great for entertaining, and it stays warm in a slow cooker throughout the game. I’ve already been asked for the recipe multiple times. This dip will definitely be a staple at all future game day gatherings!

    I tried this Rotel Dip with Sausage for the first time at a potluck, and I couldn’t get enough of it! The addition of sausage takes the classic Rotel dip to a whole new level. The flavors are bold and satisfying, with just the right amount of kick. It’s a great appetizer for parties or even just a cozy night in. I’ve already shared the recipe with all my friends because it’s too good not to pass on!

    I’ve been making this Rotel Dip with Sausage for family gatherings for years, and it’s always a crowd-pleaser. The recipe is simple and straightforward, yet the flavors are anything but ordinary. The creamy cheese perfectly balances the spice from the sausage and tomatoes. I often make a double batch because it disappears so quickly! It’s a comforting dish that brings everyone together.

The combination of creamy cheese, spicy sausage, and tangy Rotel tomatoes created a flavor explosion that had everyone going back for more. It was incredibly easy to make, and I loved that I could adjust the heat level by choosing the type of sausage. This recipe is definitely going into my regular rotation for gatherings!
