Slow-Cooker Cheese Dip

I brought this slightly spicy cheese dip to a gathering with friends and it was a huge hit. The spicy pork sausage provides the zip! —Marion Bartone, Conneaut, Ohio

    love this recipe- been making it since I was a kid- which just take it from me is a very long time- If you want to make it easier instead of tomatoes and chilies just throw in a jar of Pace salsa- for some reason pace seems to be the only one that works here although it is not my favorite salsa- and if you want it quicker just heat on low in the original pan til cheese is melted

    This is amazing! And a good change of just plain cheese dip. I never have any leftovers of this.

    When we make this we use 1 can of rotel and 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. Also we like using fritos scoops instead of tortilla chips. We always make it for christmas and with a big family there is never any leftovers.

    This makes a TON of dip, so if you're not feeding an enormous crowd cut it in half. It's really good. I made a half recipe for a birthday party of about 15-20 people and still had a lot left over.
