I did what Bodifer did and added garlic powder, onion powder, and sour cream. Something seemed to be missing after that ( I didn't have cumin) So I added 1/4 of a piece of Tasso that I put in the food processor. Oh my goodness...the best. Totally not healthy lol but sooo good.
This recipe has been a family favorite for years! I make it with HOT Jimmy Dean Sausage, 1 (8oz) brick cream cheese, and a 16oz jar of Pace picante sauce (mild). It is a hit at every party. I even get requests for it! In my house this recipe is affectionately called 'Super Fun Happy Dip'! We serve with tortilla chips. The best part is how easy it is to make!! I buy the ingredients in bulk so I can make it at a moments notice. And you can freeze this recipe if you make more than you need. Defrost in fridge or microwave.
This is the easiest and best dip. We make it for all family gatherings!
I've made this dip a lot but I have tweeked it a bit (not 3 ingredients anymore for me) I use 1/2 mild & 1/2 hot sausage (remove casing), brown with 1/2 -diced onion,& 1 clove of garlic minced, add 4 oz sour cream with the creamcz, add 1 small cn green chile (4oz), 1 tsp cumin. Cook in crockpot until blended about an hour. I can't go to any family gathering unless I bring this dip with me!!!
I first got this recipe from my sister-in-law and it's now one of my go-to recipes for potlucks and parties. Great stuff! I usually double it, and I use spicy sausage because I like a hotter dip.
