Spicy Sausage Dip



Can you believe it is March already? I am ready for Spring weather, so I am looking forward to some changing temperatures! Thank you for sticking with me through my break. I am happy to say that I have successfully completed my thesis and will be graduating with my MBA in May of this year! I really did take the time off and tried to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible, so I don’t have many new recipes to share, but I did have a few saved up. This recipe is one that actually made an appearance on New Year’s Eve and happened to be the favorite appetizer of the evening. This was a nice change to the normal queso dip usually served. Loaded with cream cheese, chorizo sausage, and rotel tomatoes the dip has a creamy and spicy kick. The heat can be controlled by using a milder sausage and/or less hot sauce. The dip can be served with crackers, bread, or tortilla chips. This makes the perfect appetizer for game day and is sure to please the men in your life!

Spicy Sausage Dip

16 oz package pork sausage

1 can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained (I used Rotel)

2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, room temperature

hot sauce to taste (such as Sriracha or tobasco)

Cook the sausage in a skillet over medium heat until evenly browned and no longer pink. Drain. Reduce heat to low, and stir in the tomatoes and cream cheese until evenly blended. Cook just until heated through. Serve warm.
