Fat Boy Nacho Cheese Dip


"My husband named this dish. A wonderfully cheesy dip with spiced ground sausage and green chiles. Served warm with corn chips, it always goes so fast at parties. If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, it makes great breakfast burritos the next day."

Great stuff! I made this for the Superbowl and it it was a hit. I will admit it was good, but not GREAT. The reason behind this is I feel it is lacking something, but couldn't place it. Everyone else said it was excellent and better than any kind of nacho dip they had before. The only problems I ran into was that first the velvetta cheese was VERY thick and needed to be melted quickly (please take into account if this is your first time making this the cheese will initially need about an hour or so to melt where you can mix everything else into it) I wound up throwing my crock pot ceramic into the microwave for a few minutes to melt the cheese. After I got everything mixed together make sure you watch that crock pot!! I found out that "low" on my crockpot was boiling the cheese on the edge scalding it. I then had to constantly turn the pot on and off and on and off. I am not sure if this is just how my crockpot is or not, but just be forewarned. Another hint I suggest is have everyone scoop their own from the crockpot with plastic spoons because if you reuse the same spoon the cheese cools and hardens and looks kind of gross and turns people away from scooping it on their plate. Other than that, great recipe and I will be making it again, this time with a crockpot liner because dried baked cheese it not fun to clean.


I loved this recipe! I made a few adjustments though. Since I was making the dip for a crowd of almost 20 I had to double it--and instead of having 2 lbs of sausage, I used 1 lb. of spicy sausage and 1 lb. ground beef. Instead of just diced green chile peppers I used the Rotel diced tomatos with green chiles. Also, the dip was a little thick for my tastes, so I used some whole milk to give the dip a creamier texture. Yumm Yumm!


This is a great recipie, but exclude the nacho cheese can and add 3/4 cup whole milk instead. This will keep it creamy, and add 1can rotel chile to spice it up!
