What is Rotel?
Rotel is a brand name for canned tomatoes and green chili peppers. Rotel was created by a small family in Texas known for their vine-ripened tomatoes and zesty flavors.
I always buy myself a couple cans of Rotel whenever I go grocery shopping and store them all in my pantry. As of today, they have always had the same wonderful flavor. I always add Rotel to my queso dip, eggs, mac-n- cheese, and homemade hamburgers.
Rotel is used in many recipes to complete many dishes. The key ingredient in Rotel is the savory tomato juice and their secret blend of spices.
Fortunately, there are lots of varieties to choose from. There’s the original, mild, and hot flavor. Make sure you pick the right Rotel for your recipe!
A Delicious Combination!
The Sausages and Rotel are a delicious combination making our all- time-favorite cheese dip fluffy, creamy, and silky smooth!
Rotel helped me achieve great consistency in many creamy recipes. The contrast between the smoky pepper and sweet tomato juice helps balance out the dip’s deep flavor.

The contrast between the smoky sausage and the burst of cream cheese in each bite creates a wonderful blend of flavors.
Keep These in Mind When Making the Sausage Rotel Dip
You must drain the the Rotel before using it in the recipe.
It is important not overcook the sausages to preserve their taste.
The key to this recipe is to keep stirring the whole time.
Make sure to serve this creamy dip warm, so you better keep it in a crock pot.
This Rotel dip is normally served with tortilla chips and crackers. However, you can use up some of the old bread you have by toasting them until they become crunchy.
You can substitute the sausages with ground beef if that’s what you prefer.
Rotel Dip Variations
Have you ever had Rotel Dip? I bet you have. If you’re feeling like switching things up a notch, here are 4 different variations to make the Sausage Rotel Dip:
Use a Slow Cooker
This is my favorite way to make the Sausage Rotel Dip. Making your dip in a slow cooker is always a good idea. It keeps everything warm, so the cream cheese doesn’t solidify – just give it a stir every so often. Make sure to stir occasionally until it’s melted and smooth.
Add your favorite vegetables to your dip. Don’t be shy! Experiment until you get the desired flavor. I like to add avocados, cilantro, beans, and fresh tomatoes. I sometimes add some celery and broccoli if I’m really in the mood!
Switch it Up!
Replace your cream cheese with a pound of diced Velveeta Cheese.
If you’re not a sausage fan, add ground beef to make the dip to your liking.
Pump Up the Flavor!
I use tomatoes with garlic, oregano, and basil for an Italian twist! You can pump up the flavor by adding some garlic powder!
Try these variations for the best velvety and creamy texture and consistency!
