Well folks, this is the final stop on the dip parade leading up to the Super Bowl. One last snack idea for you before you hit the grocery store and start executing your game day menu! This is also the final dip I have to share from the dip party that my best friend threw in December. I definitely think that we should be making that some type of seasonal occurrence. It was way too much fun and the dips too good to only do it once! This is another delicious, easy recipe (only three ingredients!) that you can add to your spread. I don’t think anyone can have too many easy, delicious recipes to turn to for various occasions :)
Although the recipe states to microwave this after combining the ingredients, I think you could also heat it on the stovetop, or even covered in the oven. Whichever is easiest for you!
I love all of the chunks of sausage in this recipe, and the bite from the picante sauce. You can control how spicy you’d like your dip to be by buying mild, medium or hot picante sauce – whatever your personal preference is! I would caution to not stray from the “regular” sausage flavor – I’m not sure this would taste as good with a maple flavor!
Thanks to Beth’s sister’s friend Jessica for this recipe!
Now tell me – who are you rooting for on Sunday?!
2 16-oz. rolls of regular sausage (Bob Evans, Jimmy Dean, whatever your favorite brand is)
2 8-oz. packages of cream cheese, softened
28 ounces picante sauce
1. Brown the sausage, breaking it up and crumbling it as it cooks. Once cooked through, remove from skillet with a slotted spoon and place in serving bowl. Mix in the cream cheese and picante sauce.
2. Microwave in 30 seconds increments, stirring between each, until the dip is heated through and the cream cheese is melted.
3. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips, pretzel crisps or crackers.
