I have been making a version of this dip for years, and it is always a favorite! The trick I use to keep it creamy & tasty is to add a 10 3/4oz can of cream of mushroom soup (regular or reduced fat) mixed with 1 cup of milk. I haved used many different kinds of sausage (bulk italian, breakfast sausage, mild, spicy) and they all come out yummy. Serving with "scoops" (Fritos or Tostitos) or small deli bread seems to work best. I recently made this for my hubby to bring to a poker tournament, and he said that the guys were licking the dish, and asking him for the recipe! This also freezes well, so it's easy to make a double batch, freeze, then thaw & throw in a crock pot.

Looking back, I don't know why I thought I would like this based on the ingredients, but the good reviews fooled me into thinking that it would be more than it was. This is pretty much just the traditional "rotel" style nacho dip plus LOTS of meat. I cut the meat in half and it was still too meaty. Not very impressive, and a lot was left in the serving dish at the end of my party. I have been searching for a dip similar to one a friend's mother made in high school that we all loved and I thought this might be it, but it looks like I will have to keep looking.

Always a hit and so easy to make. This recipe has gotten the nickname "danger dip" in our family because we can't stop eating it and often other appetizers are forgotten (in danger)when this is served. Brought it to a local fire dept. picnic and last summer and there was nothing left.

This was excellent. I made it for a work party and everyone loved it. I used the hot ground sausage.

This is such an easy recipe!! It was a family favorite. I served it with a dollop of sour cream and Frito Scoops! My niece LOVED it she had 2 or 3 bowls. It's best served warm so I suggest cooking it in a slow cooker and keeping it on low as you serve it or even just putting it in a slow cooker to just keep warm.

I read about this in the reviews of another dip recipe, so decided to try it instead. I used green salsa instead of the traditional red because that's what I had. WOW!! I will definitely make it again and again, with the green salsa. I also used chorizo for the sausage. This is definitely a hit record.

This was a very good appetiser for everyone! It made a lot and kept well in an electric fondue pot! I added spicey sausage to give it a little ZIP!
