A wonderful friend makes this for her open houses, and it is a fantastic queso type dip to serve with tortilla chips. Just a touch of heat, but not too spicy (though if you like it spicy - just use hotter picante sauce). I'm a transplant and moved to Alabama in the late 90's, and ironically it's named Alabama dip! Hope you enjoy.


  1. Brown the beef and sausage and drain.
  2. Cut the Velveeta into large chunks.
  3. Put everything but cheese into a large crock pot and stir a bit - add cheese. Cook on high for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours till cheese is melted (stirring occasionally). Turn to low for the party.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips.
  5. It has just enough heat for my mild tastebuds, but if you like it spicier, by all means use Hot picante sauce.
  6. And in case you're wondering - the cream soup helps keep it from separating and helps keep it saucy while being heated.

Great party dip! This is very similar to the dip I always make with one exception - the mushroom soup. The soup does make the dip more creamy without taking away from the taste and heat of the cheese dip. The only change I made was to leave out the ground beef--I felt the hot sausage was enough meat to suit our tastes. I will definitely use this method next time I make cheese dip. Thanks for the tip!

Excellent dip! I made this for our Christmas Eve party and it was a big hit. I made it the day before on the stove top and then heated it up in the crock pot. Served with tortilla chips and scoops. Thanks for sharing! ***Made for PRMR***
