crack dip recipe

For me, this recipe is as D.C. as the Redskins. But even if the team doesn't make it to the Super Bowl, this dip is the perfect playoff accompaniment. It's so good, it's addictive — just like crack.

It uses Rotel (this isn't high-brow food obviously), but you can sauté some diced tomatoes with mild chopped jalapeños instead.

Deliver Ingredients


  • ¾ pound of sweet Italian sausage (about 4 links)
  • One 10-ounce can of Rotel Diced Tomato & Green Chilies (mild)
  • 2 pinches of red pepper flakes
  • Two 15-ounce packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream


Take the sausage meat out of the casings and sauté on medium heat, breaking up into small chunks. When cooked through, pour out the excess oil. Put back on the stove and add in the tomatoes and chilies and the red pepper flakes and cook for about another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir the sausage mix into the softened cream cheese. Then mix in the sour cream. Take a moment to prepare yourself.

Serve with tortilla chips, sliced baguette or thick ripple potato chips.

Dip Shopping Tip

Instead of reaching for the same off the shelf, pre-made dips and sauces from your local grocery stores, try something different and make something fresh with bold flavors to liven up your meal.

Dip Cooking Tip

Spices and herbs can be a cook's best friend. Don’t be afraid to add something unfamiliar to dips and sauce. They just might be the extra flavor that is needed to brighten up the dish.
