Hot Sausage and Rotel Dip

We like things HOT HOT HOT around here. This dip is an oldie, but a goodie. It is perfect for your fall tailgating and football watching. I always have these ingredients on hand and this is perfect to whip up for teenagers and hungry football fans. My guys especially love it.  I've even been know to dice up a jalapeno or two and throw them in. Of course if hot is not your thing, just use mild sausage and rotel. 
Hot Sausage and Rotel Dip
1 pound Hot Sausage
2 packages (8 ounces) cream cheese, cut into chunks
1 can (10 ounces) Hot Rotel, drained
1 teaspoon Frank's Hot Sauce
1/4  teaspoon garlic powder
Bag of Fritos or Tortilla Chips for serving

In a large skillet over medium high heat brown the sausage, until cooked through. Reduce the heat to medium low and add the cream cheese, Rotel, hot sauce and garlic powder. Continue heating until the cheese is melted and everything is mixed together. Transfer to a crock pot to serve. You can also throw the cooked sausage with the other ingredients into a crock pot and just warm. Serve with Fritos or chips.

Enjoy!
