To make Ro-Tel and sausage dip, combine 1/2 pound of cooked and crumbled sausage, 1 pound of Velveeta cheese cut in 1/2-inch cubes, and one 16-ounce undrained can of Ro-Tel in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the mixture on high for five minutes to melt the cheese. Stir after three minutes.
Use either mild or hot sausage to make the dip, and serve it with tortilla chips, crackers or vegetables. The recipe section of Ro-Tel.com includes a variation using 7 ounces of Mexican-style chorizo sausage and 2 tablespoons of sliced green onions along with the cheese and Ro-Tel.
