This hot sausage dip is similar to our Velveeta Rotel sausage dip but this go around we are using real cheese! You could use ground beef too but we are going all out, and not counting calories this time. Quick to make and never lasts long. (affiliate links present)

Sausage Cream Cheese Dip

You are going to love this easy Queso Dip with Meat y’all. I have made it all different ways and am sharing them all along the way. Cream cheese is a great base for the creamy texture you are always looking for to scoop up all the things. Add ins like banana and/or bell peppers are up to you. Use more of one or none of the other.

Besides chips, this is a great dip for sausage balls too! During the big game I like to have lots and lots of choices. If you have a large island just create a buffet with all sorts of items guests can pick up and walk around with.

We baked in the oven but if you are cooking everything outside, use your grill!! With our Traeger I will make Smoked Queso Dip if everything else is already on the grates, no reason to heat up the house in the summertime! The best combo we came up with for this popular version needs;

  • Ground Italian sausage I like spicy Jimmy Dean, precooked
  • Softened cream cheese and can of Rotel or tomatoes with diced chiles, drained before adding
  • Banana peppers diced
  • 1/2 c bell pepper red was used
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 c parmesan cheese
  • Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp pepper

You can serve this party dip right out of the dish, set on a trivet or transfer to something “fancier”. If it sits for a bit I would suggest that you stir occasionally just because the top will begin to harden a bit. You could alternatively move into a slow cooker and sit on the warm setting.

This way comes in handy during Super Bowl game days when people want to snack for long periods of time. There are small Crock pots made for warm dips like this so you don’t have to use your dinner size version.

I mean if you wanted to use a different protein you could. We did this as we tweaked it to be a Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip and it was a hit!! Dairy free cheeses work as well but I will say that it doesn’t melt quite as nicely as the “regular” versions.

  • Preheat the oven to 375°. In a large mixing bowl beat together the cream cheese and seasonings, until combined.
    • In a skillet over medium heat, cook your meat so it is no longer pink.
  • Add the cooked and drained ground sausage, drained Rotel or diced tomatoes if you don’t want any heat at all, banana peppers, red bell peppers, 1.5 cups of your mozzarella cheese (save 1/2 cup and set aside) and Parmesan.
  • Use a spatula to combine.
  • Spoon into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
  • Top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and bake for 15 minutes in the oven until cream cheese is melted.
  • Then set to broil and let broil for 2-3 minutes until top is melted, bubbly and brown. Serve with toasted baguette or tortilla chips.

As with other party foods you will want some things to scoop it up. Scoops Fritos are great if you like a strong corn variety. Tortilla chips in air fryer can be made from scratch if you have time for that, or sliced pita bread is kinda’ nice too. Let’s talk about a few other fun options below;

You can toast small pieces of bread too if you like more space to load this on to. This is How to Make Bruschetta Toast that is a cheap, but pretty, option we love to offer on any buffet table. Just slice, add a bit of olive oil and seasonings, bake and they are ready. You can prep them beforehand too and bake in batches so they are fresh.

What can I do with left over dips?

Leftover dips can be quite versatile, and there are several creative ways to repurpose them so that nothing goes to waste. Hummus, tzatziki, or guacamole, make excellent spreads for sandwiches or wraps. They add flavor and creaminess to your favorite fillings. Incorporate leftover dip into cooked pasta for a quick and creamy sauce. This works well with cheesy or pesto-based dips.

Remember that when storing it should always be cooled to room temperature first. Then use within 3 days. If you are serving as is you may want to thin it out with a little milk since the cold will stiffen it up a bit over time. Heat in 30 second increments stirring in between until warmed to your liking and enjoy again.
