      This is SOOO good. Really hits all the right notes-creamy, salty and tangy. Vegetarian Boca sausage found in the freezer section of your local market provides a spicier version, but I like it with vegetarian hot-dogs or tofu dogs also from the freezer section -try Trader Joe's even some Wal-marts. Canned Worthington Hot dogs also work. If you don't have enough sour cream use Mushroom soup for part of it. YUM.

      This was an excellent meal. I'm afraid I lost the vegetarian part because I used kielbasa for the sausage. But it was wonderful that way. Thanks for a keeper recipe. Make for Aus/NZ Swap#20

      This was really great. I didn't have "regular" vegetarian sausage, so I used soyrizo, soy chorizo. It has cumin in it, and a lot of other spice, but it was really good in this. I upped the amount of sour cream to about double when I made it too.
