Spicy Rotel Dip

I am not sure where I found this recipe, but my entire family, including extended, love this cheese dip. It spices up regular Rotel and is a nice change from what we all know. It's a bit too spicy for young kids, but my kids try it anyways. They'll dip the corner of the triangle in it and that's enough for them! I usually make a batch and freeze half of it in a gallon size freezer bag, lying flat on a shelf in the freezer. Defrost and throw into crock pot for a last minute appetizer. If you don't like spicy then use regular Rotel to tone it down a bit, but HOT really makes the dip. It's almost Superbowl time and sadly (but not surprisingly) my hometome team, The KC Chiefs, will not be playing. Enjoy this dip anyways :)

1 package hot breakfast sausage
1 onion, chopped
2 lbs. Velveeta
1 can regular Rotel
1 can HOT Rotel
1 can chopped green chilies
1 jalapeno, chopped

In skillet, cook sausage and onion together until sausage is cooked and browned. Drain fat as needed. Add Rotels, Velveeta and green chilies. Cook over low heat until melted, strring frequently. Once melted, add jalapeno. Serve with tortilla chips or place in crock pot to stay warm. If freezing, let cool slightlyand pour into gallon bags.
