This is good. There is a cold version as well which is great for travel to parties and makes a beautiful presentation. Let the cream cheese soften and mix well with the Rotel. Spread in a flat pan or container. Top with chopped Roma Or grape tomatoes, black olives and chopped lettuce or mixed greens and shredded cheese. Looks beautiful. And is soooooo good!
We always add browned pan sausage to this. You just cant eat enough.
We have been making this dip for over 50 years in our family. It is a staple item for all family gatherings and has always been known as "The Dip". We have added variations over the years like added sliced jalapenos and/or hot sauce to it. Frito Scoop chips are the best item to dip with.
