Cook Time:30 mins

Equipment

  • Instant Pot

Ingredients

  • 16 oz hot breakfast sausage
  • 20 oz Rotel tomatoes (not drained)
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 16 oz Velveeta (easy melt) cheese

Instructions

  • Set your Instant Pot to saute mode. Once warm, add sausage. Cook until crumbled and brown; drain excess grease.
  • Add both cans of Rotel (without draining) to Instant Pot. Lock on lid and set your pressure cooker (manual) function to 4 minutes.
  • Once cook cycle is over and pressure is released, remove lid and stir well. Turn on slow cooker (low) function.
  • Add cream cheese and Velveeta, cut into 1" chunks. Stir until cheese is melted and mixed into sausage/Rotel.
  • Slow cook dip, stirring occasinally, until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips.

Notes

Lowfat version of both cheeses can be used if desired; using either version doesn't significantly change the taste of the recipe.

And that's all there is to it – easy peasy! Hope you enjoy this one, friends – I know I did. 🙂 Want to see more of my recipes? Click here. Or, you can click here for more Instant Pot ideas.

    What is the shelf life for this dip?

      Since it has sausage, I’d say no more than 3-4 days in the fridge.
