Cheesy Sausage Dip

This is one of my favorite dips.  I found the recipe in a Schwan’s Catalog.  Although, I don’t use Schwan’s products in this, it turns out great!  This dip is particularly good with slices of a fresh crusty baguette.

Cheesy Sausage Dip-adapted from Schwan’s

Serves 10 appetizer portions

Ingredients:

  • 1 pckg. Sweet Italian Sausage
  • 4 oz can green chilies, chopped, drained
  • 1 cup chopped red peppers (or the roasted ones from a jar are also terrific in this)
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tsp. Creole Seasoning (Konriko Brand is great- see under Products Category)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions or chives
  • To DIP:  1-2 loaves of french baguette or tortilla chips

Directions: Preheat oven to 400F.  Saute and crumble the Italian Sausage until cooked and no longer pink.  Add chilies and bell peppers, cooking 2-3 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients, except green onions (and bread of course).  Bake 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions or chives and serve with sliced bread or tortilla chips.
