Elia's Dip (Sausage and Cream Cheese Dip)

I've seen this dip called so many different things. We call it "Elia's Dip". Elia is a long time friend and fellow Army wife. We used to live in the same apartment complex years ago. She brought this yummy dip to one of our parking lot BBQ's and everyone fell in love with it. What makes hers different than the rest is loading it up on lime flavored tortilla chips. Something about those chips just makes it better!!

Elia's Dip (Sausage and Cream Cheese Dip)

1 pound sausage
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers **
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
Lime flavored tortilla chips***

Let's Get Started:

1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over a medium heat until it is browned and cooked through. Drain grease.

2. Add sausage, cream cheese and diced tomatoes to a crock pot on low to medium heat. Heat until cream cheese is melted and dip is warm.

When re-heating dip you may want to add a little milk.

**can sub diced tomatoes with green chile peppers flavored with lime and cilantro
***if using lime and cilantro flavored tomatoes use regular tortilla chips
