Super bowl Sunday 2018 is here! Time for lots of food that’s so bad for you, entertaining commercials on TV, and oh, yes…football! I’m cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles for two reasons. One, they’re from PA like me; and two, New England has won too many times! I’m going to my eldest son’s home for the big game and taking the best and easiest dip in the world.
My friend, Charleen, is the originator of this recipe. We have made it every year now for at least ten years at her Florida lake house when she invites five lucky friends each October for a girls’ weekend. We are fondly known as “The Ladies of the Lake” and Charleen makes a double recipe of this dip Friday evening when we arrive. No diets for the weekend so we totally indulge in this creamy goodness. After we stuff ourselves we refrigerate the leftovers and reheat them on Saturday evening after a day of shopping. It still tastes good.
Whip up this delicacy this afternoon. Don’t think about the calories or your clogged arteries. You and your besties will love it.
1# sausage such as Jimmy Dean regular
1 can Ro-Tel original diced tomatoes & green chilies
1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese (Philadelphia brand, in honor of the Eagles)
In a skillet over medium high heat, brown and crumble the sausage. Lower the heat to medium, stir in the Ro-Tel, juice and all. Stir in cream cheese. Heat until cream cheese has melted. Pour into a small crockpot to keep warm. Serve with Scoops.
