Alabama Dip

"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."

Ready In:
8-10 cups




  • Brown the beef and sausage and drain.
  • Cut the Velveeta into large chunks.
  • 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.
  • Serve with tortilla chips.
  • It has just enough heat for my mild tastebuds, but if you like it spicier, by all means use Hot picante sauce.
  • And in case you're wondering - the cream soup helps keep it from separating and helps keep it saucy while being heated.

  1. Superly delicious cheese dip. Spooned it over tortilla chips. Killer.
  2. 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!

  3. 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***


I love trying new recipes and once a month cooking (though I don't do it as often as I'd like). I am absolutely getting hooked on the tag games! Thank you to everyone who has tried my recipes, I hope you're liking them as much as my family does! My favorite magnet is one I got from my MIL that has a bunny hopping around saying I'm to busy to be organized. Story of my life. I have three great kids who are growing up way too fast, I'm not ready for empty nest syndrome. I married a wonderful man in 2009 who took me to Alaska on our honeymoon, It was one of the top two places I've always wanted to visit (not one he really had a desire to go to). Next year he's taking me to the other one he and I both want - Australia. Guess I like places that start with A's.
