Football Eats

I LOVE football season!  Sundays are typically spent sleeping in then coffee followed by the gym, a late breakfast, football and then normally a big Sunday dinner!  So since a ‘football appropriate’ snack is typically needed in between the late breakfast and the Sunday dinner I have been experimenting with various dips and appetizers.  We toned it down for a couple of weekends but with last weekend’s SEC Championship (ROLL TIDE!) I made the mother of all dips!  It was cheesy, so delicious and about the furthest thing from healthy – but it was the SEC Championship game so it was totally worth it. 

Creamy & Spicy Rotel Dip
(Adapted from Plain Chicken)
1/2 lb spicy sausage
4 oz Velveeta cheese
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 can Rotel tomatoes (drained)

Brown the sausage and then drain.  In a microwave safe bowl heat the Velveeta, cream cheese and sour cream until melted and combined (stirring occasionally).  Stir in the sausage and Rotel.  Serve warm with tortilla chips.

That’s it!  The dip is so simple and took less than 15 minutes to make – but at the same time it was so delicious!  I have already had requests to make it again!
