I have made this dip so many times I already lost count. It is a big hit with everyone including the little ones that can tolerate spicy food. I use jalapeno sausage and would recommend it instead of the hot sausage. I always triple the recipe because it is the first thing to go. I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a simple dish to bring to a party or serve to guests.

My daughter made this wonderful dip to carry to a Thanksgiving dinner/party. Instead of baking it in the oven she warmed it in a crock pot. This made it easy to transport and warm up on arrival. Today I am making a batch for our New Year's Day TV-athon!

This is the best dip ever! It was a huge hit and I will definately make again. I do not top with cheese and I mix all ingerdients in the skillet then transfer to a crockpot to keep warm...yum! Next time I am going to try chorizo :)

Oh wow! Absolutely delicious! Used only green chiles since I couldn't find Rotel or the equivalent in the store. This turned out perfect and bubbly. I mixed the shredded cheddar directly into the mix rather than on top. This is the perfect dish for an appetizer for a Mexican themed party. Yummo!

I love this recipe. It is very simple and everyone loves it. The cookbook that it was in was one of my FAVORITE cookbooks, but I have lost it. Can someone please tell me the name of the cookbook as it had so many wonderful recipes including a Cowboy Cookie recipe?

I chopped up Morning Star sausage patties for a veggie side dish on New Year's Eve and kept everything warm in the crockpot. Used fat free cream cheese and also added half a jar of Mexican Villa Mild Sauce. Skipped the shredded cheddar to save caolories and served with tortilla chips. Excellent and super-healthy appetizer!

Yummy! Next time will mix cheese in or leave out, as dish cooled it got that hardish shell on top, but not a huge deal. Mixed the leftovers with two scrambled eggs the next morning, as one reviewer suggested, baked at 350 for about 35 minutes and had a delicious brunch casserole the next day!

A hit for the Thanksgiving app! Super easy to prep and everyone LOVED it. It does take a little time to cook the sausage, just compared to a dip/appetizer where you can stir all the ingredients together without cooking anything first. I prepared it the night before - perfect!

This is everyone's favorite. And, one of this cook's favorite. It is not only delicious but so easy to make. I have added two 8-ounce packges of cream cheese to recipe if I needed extra large portion. No difference in taste. Still yummy.

Very easy & good recipe. I didn't understand why the recipe calls for you to drain 1/4 cup liquid from the tomatoes & chilies and then in the next step tell you to add it back in. I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do so I met in the middle somewhere. I kept about 1/8 cup out. If I were to do it again, I think I would leave the drained 1/4 cup out all together. All it did was thin out the dip. I used a zesty hot ground sausage (Bob Evans) and it was definitely fine. But I'm thinking your final results will depend on using a brand and type that suits your tastes.

This recipe gets 5 stars because it is easy, fast and delicious. I used hot Italian sausage, mixed the cheddar into the mixture prior to baking and sprinkled extra cheese on top. I cubed the cream cheese then gave it a short zap in the microwave so it was easier to mix thoroughly into the hot cooked sausage. I served with Artisan tortilla chips and it was a winner!

Better with italian spicy turkey sausage and 1/3 less fat cream cheese - shredded cheese also add cumin and some green onion....very good without so much guilt.

This was so good and so easy to make! It was a big hit at the football party. Our team lost so it may be bad luck though. ;) Seriously, try this one!

Has anyone tried making a brunch dish by adding eggs to the recipe?
