One of mine and Ashley's trademark dips for parties has become... dun, dun, dun... THE SAUSAGE DIP. Everyone loves it. I mean EVERYONE. And well, it's pretty much expected of us now. SO... we thought we'd share so we're not always the only ones making it! Here's the recipe. Enjoy!
1/2 and onion (or about a 1/2 cup pre-chopped frozen onions)
2 lbs Jimmy Dean sausage
4 tomatoes diced OR 2 (16 oz) cans of diced tomatoes
8 0z of chopped green chilies
Saute the onions in butter (there's that butter again) until golden brown...not burnt. Stir in sausage and cook thoroughly. Add tomatoes and chilies.
8 oz cream cheese
16 oz sour cream
Melt cream cheese and sour cream in a crock pot. Add the sausage mixture. (You can even add this before the cream cheese is totally melted, because it will help in the melting process.) Cook thoroughly stirring often to melt all the cheese!
Don't forget to take what my dad calls, a scritch (small taste) often and eat with your fave tortilla chips!
