Instant Pot Sausage Queso Dip
Since the first Christmas we were married Greg has been making Velveeta-Rotel dip. He used to make it with ground beef but has since switched it up to ground sausage for more flavor. It is just one of those recipes that you HAVE to make this time of year. Whether it’s for Christmas, New Years or football watching…it’s just a rule.
I made the dip in my 3 quart Instant Pot* and it was the perfect size. I left the sausage queso dip in the 3 quart pot on the warm setting and it was kept at the perfect temperature. Scoop a bit onto a plate and serve with chips and veggies (no double dipping people!). I was convinced that I would just have one more chip with dip over and over…this dip is addicting!
What is Rotel? Rotel is canned petite diced tomatoes with green chilis and spices. They have a little heat, but if you don’t like spice you can buy the mild variety. You can find them next to the canned tomatoes at your grocery store. If you want to make this dip and you don’t have Rotel, you can substitute salsa or a can of diced tomatoes and a can of green chiles.
What kind of sausage should I use? You can use ground breakfast sausage, Italian sausage, chorizo, or any other sausage that you like.
