1 pound ground hot pork sausage

1 pound ground mild pork sausage

1 can diced tomatoes

1 can green chiles

16 oz. cream cheese

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar or Mexican blend cheese

Corn chips or tortilla chips for dipping

 

Directions

  1. Cook sausage in a large skillet until meat crumbles and is no longer pink.  Drain well.
  2. Drain diced tomatoes and green chiles, reserving 1/2 cup of liquid.
  3. Mix cream cheese until smooth.  Add sausage, tomatoes and reserved liquid.
  4. Spread into a greased casserole dish and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  5. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, until bubbly.
  6. Cover tightly and place into PanHandler Bag.
  7. Arrive at your destination with a hot, delicious dip and serve with corn chips or tortilla chips.

*****This recipe makes enough to serve a crowd.  If you need a smaller portion, you can use two smaller casserole dishes and freeze one for later use.  Just bring the frozen dip to room temperature before baking.  Enjoy!
