  • Keep it warm – After browning the sausage, you can add everything to a 3 qt. crockpot to keep it warm while entertaining.
  • Substitute sausage – Try some mild, medium, or spicy Italian sausage instead of regular sausage. Add some chorizo for more flavor.
  • Substitute Rotel – Switch up the Rotel with some chunky salsa or regular salsa.
  • Spice it up – Add some spice with chopped jalapenos.
  • Add more flavor – Add another layer of flavor with some sour cream.
  • Make it smoky – Try adding a few shakes of smoked paprika to give the dip a little smoky flavor.
