Easy 4 Ingredient Recipe

Sausage – Use your favorite ground sausage blend, mild or hot Italian sausage are both great options! Ground beef, chicken, or turkey sausage will work, too!

Cheese – Choose full-fat cream cheese for the best flavor, and avoid tubs since they are whipped with air and won’t be as creamy. Any combination of cheddar, Monterey Jack, mozzarella, or a Mexican blend is perfect in this recipe – even Velveeta cheese can be used! For a thinner dip, stir in some Mexican queso, sour cream, Greek yogurt, or a little bit of milk.

Tomatoes – Rotel tomatoes come pre-seasoned with green chilis, but any can of tomatoes with their juice can be used. If using fresh tomatoes, choose Romas since they are meatier with less moisture and thinner skins. Or skip the tomatoes altogether and stir in your favorite salsa blend.

Variations – Stir in some keto-friendly veggies like chopped spinach, kale, or broccoli for a boost of flavor and nutrition. Make it extra spicy with some slices of jalapenos or a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce.
