Meanwhile, crumble and fry the sausage; drain thoroughly on paper towels.

To the crockpot with melted Velveeta®, add sausage and combine. Stir in the evaporated milk, blending well.

Then, add the dry salad dressing mix and Tabasco™. Reduce crockpot temperature to avoid scorching the dip.

Serve dip warm with Dorito's®.
