Creamy Sausage Dip

This was hands down the marriage maker in dip form!  Captain was ever so happy and had a lot...I mean a lot.  We had several guest tasters over last night and this dip got a score of 10 out of 10!  Woowzer, that has never happened.  In other words, it is a keeper.  It makes a ton, even after having 6 adults nosh on it and Captain's late night fridge raid, I still have a large amount left. I will warn you, this is not healthy but sometimes a cook has gotta make her Captain happy.  :)

4 packages of cream cheese

2 cans of Rotel (this is the tomato mixture in the cans with green chiles.  If you can't find it you can get diced tomatoes and add some spices to give it a kick)

1.5-2 pounds of pork sausage (this can be Jimmy Dean or Bob Evans breakfast sausage or just ground pork.  I used a mixture of both)

3-4 hot peppers (I picked a few pablanos from my garden and left the seeds in.  You can make it as spicy or mild as you please.  You can skip the peppers all together but they add so much flavor)

cook pork and drain.  put all ingredients in the crock and heat on low for aprox. 1 hour or until the cream cheese is melted.  I put it on high for 20 minutes and back down to low because I was running late on time.  Serve with crusty french bread or a very heavy cracker that can take the weight.  Tortilla chips do not work so well as they tend to break.  Enjoy!
Got this recipe from Crock Pot Girls and Cooking.com and tweeked it a little.
