I'm amused by the commenter below who didn't like the concept of mixing Mexican cheese with Italian sausage. Isn't that what fusion cuisine is supposed to be all about? Kidding aside, I like the idea of using chorizo with the melted cheese. Using this as a filling for quesadillas is also a good idea, though I wouldn't add the salsa to the mix, but rather have that on the side.

you can use hot italian sausage - just add cumin - a bit of chili powder - muy bueno !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can't do MEXICAN cheese dip with ITALIAN sausage... Use chorizo! While you're at it, do cheese, chorizo, and Rotel tomatoes or salsa. That's the right way to do Queso! :)
