Looking for a quick and easy dip that is so delicious you’ll be tempted to eat it by the spoonful?  This sausage queso dip is THAT recipe!

Hearty dips are perfect to share with a crowd for any get together, but once this recipe is made for your family and friends be prepared to be the official sausage queso dip maker!

Everyone devours this dip even when there are several other munchie options to choose from!

Sausage cream cheese dip made without any extra fillers in the meat!

There are no spices added in the ingredient list because all the flavor comes from the food!  Be sure to use good quality sausage that isn’t made with any fillers like rice, flour, potato starch or breadcrumbs.  Also, look at the ingredients on the tomatoes, and pick a brand that cans without any added sugar!

I used Premio brand of sausage, which I also used for this low carb biscuits and sausage gravy recipe.  Premio has quickly become my favorite sausage!  It’s so tasty!

Another way to add simple tasty flavor is to add petite tomatoes with chilies.  One can is all it took to liven up this cheesy appetizer.  I used the store brand, but you can find all different types of tomato and diced chili combinations, so pick your favorite (or what’s on sale).

You can always add some extra heat if you want this dip to be extra spicy by including a chopped jalapeno or serve them sliced on the side.

There is a bonus to this sausage cheese dip recipe too!  It’s low carb and keto friendly!  Just as long as you keep the chips off your plate and enjoy your portion with celery, go ahead and munch away!

It won’t be long before this appetizer fills you up though, so you may consider this dish your complete meal.

If you want a little something to follow this dip, this slow cooker chicken tortilla soup will keep the Mexican flavor theme going strong!

    The ONLY way to improve queso is to add sausage to it (IMHO)…. This looks SO good!! 🙂
