Queso

I can't believe it's been 2 months since I last posted a recipe. Sorry! 
Today I have a recipe that I grew up eating at family get togethers. My Grandma always had a crock-pot full of this yummy cheese dip.

But the other day on Pinterest I saw the exact same recipe with an additional ingredient: Cream Cheese!
I decided I had to give it a try. The verdict....yum!
The cream cheese adds a wonderful creaminess to this queso. 
The original recipe said you could use ground beef or sausage. I have never tried ground beef, I prefer the taste of the sausage. But that's just me.

Super Bowl is right around the corner, what a great excuse to try this. :) 
Enjoy!!

Queso Dip
1 block (32 Oz. Block) Velveeta Cheese
1 package (8 Oz. Package) Cream Cheese
1 can (10 Oz. Can) Rotel
1 can (10.75 Oz. Can) Cream Of Mushroom Soup
1 pound Sausage
Brown sausage in a pan over medium heat and set aside. Cut up the Velveeta and cream cheese into cubes and place into a crock pot. Pour in the Rotel and the cream of mushroom soup and stir ingredients together. Place the crock pot on low setting for an hour, letting the ingredients meld. After about 30 minutes, add the browned meat and continue to let cook, stirring as needed.
