I fried the ground beef and sausage and then drained off the fat in a metal colander...a must. Then I mixed everything in a crockpot until the cheese melted. For the tomatoes, I used a can of Mexican Rotel tomatoes. Served with tortilla chips, this is a great party dip.

way too cheesy- added an onion and an extra can of rotelle tomatoes w/ green chilies will try with less processed cheese or maybe just cream cheese and chedder

I add 1 onion and 1 bell pepper to this recipe and it's almost a meal in itself. I put it on baked potatoes or serve it with chips. Makes a great side dish for whatever you want to put it on.

I tweeked it to our tastes. I used all ground beef and used 2 cans stewed tomatoes and 2 cans chopped chilies. I also put it in the crockpot. Now that I think about it, I changed it quite a bit. But it is very very good, especially with "Scoops".

I made this three time already (Thanksgiving, Christmas party, and again for my hubby). It was delicious and will be a main recipe in our household. I did use 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 Jimmy Dean Hearty Sausage Crumbles the first time (all sausage other times...prefer combo) and fried it up and combined everything in a crock pot lined with a slow cooker liner---it's a must!! No need to scrub the melted on cheese. Just throw away the bag. Delicious!!

This has always been a favorite of our family. The only change is adding a can of cream of celery soup,this not only adds to the flavor but also makes more. Also you can add a few dashes of cayenne pepper to give it more kick!

This dip is always a hit at get togethers. I usually make it with ground beef only. Clean up is not fun because the cheese hardens onto everything, but it's quick and easy to make! Sometimes I use Velveeta with diced chiles for some extra heat.

love love love this dip.....i use spicy sausage,ground and mexican velveeta....i also add cream of mushroom soup......if you don't have diced tomatoes on hand salsa is a good substitute.....we keep ours in the crockpot on low and serve with tortilla chips and warmed soft flour tortilla yummy!!!!!
