Who doesn’t love a good cheese dip? I like to have something to snack on immediately after I get off the water, especially after a 12-14 hour day of practice. This recipe I’ve got for y’all today is something you can throw in the crock-pot and have ready for later, either while you’re cooking dinner or as a meal itself. It’s really easy, and pretty dang tasty. The biggest thing I do different with my sausage dip is I add sweet jalapeños to the mix. This gives it a little bit of a kick, and adds a delicious bit of flavor as well. 


Ingredients: One to two blocks of Velveeta, four cans of Ro Tel, 1/2 jar of sweet jalapeños, 2 pounds of Jimmy Dean regular sausage, three to four sprigs Cilantro

Tools: Pan, spatula, can opener, Crock-Pot, knife or small blender

Unwrap 2 pounds of Jimmy Dean regular sausage and brown in a pan on high heat.

Add your browned sausage into the Crock-Pot set at a medium heat.

Break up your Velveeta into blocks (or slices) and add into Crock-Pot.

Dump half a jar of sweet jalapeños (juices and all) into the mix.

Dump your four cans of Ro Tel into the mix.

Instead of chopping my Cilantro, I use my Nutribullet to chop it up and then dump it in. 

Use a spatula or spoon to mix everything up evenly.

After you mix your ingredients let them sit in Crock-Pot for at least 30-45 minutes or until it’s all melted. 

After that you’re ready to grab some chips and dig in!
