Sausage Dip

I don't really know what this is called but I made it for the superbowl and it was really good. We just dipped chips but there are crackers and things that would be good too.
1 pound of sausage
2 pkg of cream cheese
2 cans of rotel
Cook the sausage first and then add it all into a crockpot and heat until warm.  We just left it in the crockpot the whole time for people to dish out of.  It was a hit.

Mix together the cream cheese, vanilla, and brown sugar until creamy. Sprinkle peanuts on top if desired. Serve with apple slices. This recipe takes like a yummy creamy caramel dip!

South of the Border Dip

This is my favorite dip recipe! Once we tried this, we made it over, and over, and over again. If I had to compare it to something, I'd say it's similar to an artichoke dip.
Be sure to serve with a thick, soft bread instead of the traditional chips.

1pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese
1 1/4 c. shredded monterey jack cheese, divided
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles, drained
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/8 tsp. ground chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Bread for dipping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 3 cup baking dish. Beat cream cheese until smooth.
Stir in 1 cup shredded cheese and rest of the ingredients until just combined.
Spread into baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake 20-25 min. or until hot and bubbly.

February Theme

I've seen so many dip recipes latley, so I thought that would make a good theme.

I also thought I'd highlight some dip recipes that were posted quite awhile ago so they are not forgotten- they are too good!
