Crock Pot Sausage Rotel Dip

1. Sausage Crack Dip

Generally speaking, the word "crack" is pretty played out in the recipe realm. Every other recipe that spotlights a combination of cheese and bacon seems to have the word "crack" in it. As annoying as the fad may be, we have to admit: This sausage crack dip recipe actually deserves its name, because this stuff is incredibly addictive (albeit not as dangerous as its namesake, of course). With a simple composition of cream cheese, Rotel tomatoes, and zesty sausage, sausage crack dip is about as easy as slow cooker dip recipes come.

2. Pizza Dip

Pizza sauce, ooey gooey cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, cream cheese, and robust seasonings join forces to create this mouthwatering slow cooker dip. While most dips act as companions to chips or crackers, this one offers up some more decadent vessel variations like garlic bread or naan.
