"This is similar to a dip I've been making for 20 years. I use a half pound of mild (or you can use medium or hot) ground sausage, 1 can Rotel original undrained and a pound of Velveeta. Cook the sausage until crispy browned and drain. Pour into a microwave dish and stir in cubed Velveeta and Rotel. Cover and micro on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and if needed, keep heating for 20 seconds on med high until melted and hot. Serve with nacho chips or veggies. Everyone loves this!

Also delicious for filling Texas style omelets."
