How To Make Hanky Panky Sausage Dip
I’m almost too embarrassed to talk about how easy this dip is to make! I brown Italian sausage in a skillet. You can either crumble up sausage links or use the bulk sausage like Bob Evans in this recipe. Drain the sausage and place it in a small saucepan (a small crockpot is even better) along with cubed Velveeta and a can of Rotel tomatoes, drained. Stir until melted and combined! So easy, right?
What To Dip In Sausage Dip?
I personally prefer to use the scoop chips, but anything sturdy will do. The sausage dip gets pretty thick so something like thing tortilla chips or potato chips just won’t’ work. Pita chips or rye cracker rounds are fantastic!
How Long Is Sausage Dip Good For?
This dip will be good for an hour so as long as it is in a small crockpot and STIRRED OFTEN. As mentioned above, it does thicken quite a bit so it needs a heat source and to be stirred to keep it fresh and dippable!
