Tired of the same old cheese dip? This one is packed full of flavor with spicy sausage, jalapenos, red onion, sour cream, salsa and creamy cheese.
I like my cheese dip not too thick; that's where the addition of milk comes in for my recipe. The milk makes this dip silky smooth and "dippable."
It seems at least once a month I am asked to bring something to a potluck. I am tired of making the same things and wanted something packed with flavor; this dip is what I needed.
Whether the get-together is a work meeting or a game-day party, this dip will be a hit. It travels easily; take it hot and ready to the party in the slow cooker. All this dip needs is a bowl of corn chips and it's ready to go. When I served this at a meeting this week, it all disappeared! It's that good. Enjoy!
