- When browning the sausage, add in some diced bell peppers and onions.

The options are practically limitless!
How Spicy is this Sausage and Cheese Dip?
One of the most common questions I get about this dip recipe is how spicy is it?! The answer is it depends on the type of cheese, sausage, and salsa you use. If you use mild salsa, regular Velveeta cheese, and plain sausage, it won't be spicy at all. However, if you use jalapeno Velveeta, hot salsa, and spicy sausage, it'll be pretty darn spicy!
However you make it, I can pretty much guarantee you'll have people coming back for more!
How to Store Sausage and Cheese Dip
Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat the dip in the microwave before serving.
