Cooktop Cove: Have everyone begging you for this party-pleasing recipe that only takes 4 easy steps
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!
Spicy sausage cheese dip
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 1 hr, 30 mins
Total Time: 1 hr, 50 mins
1 pound spicy breakfast sausage, browned and drained
1 pound Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/2 cup salsa (any kind will do)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1. Add everything to a 3-quart or larger slow cooker, beginning with the sausage.
Then add the Velveeta cheese.
Next, add the other ingredients.
3. Cover and cook on high for 1.5 to 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes. It is done when the cheese is melted and the dip is hot.
4. Serve and enjoy!
Pro tip: Add more jalapenos to make this dip extra spicy! Or use a bell pepper if you don't like the heat so much.
