This dip is really colorful and delicious. I used regular velveeta and hot Jimmy Dean sausage vs. chorizo because I find chorizo a bit too greasy. Loved the idea of the broccoli - makes you think it is low cal. Made this dish for the Tailgating tag, September, 2011.
My husband loved this more than the traditional version using chili. I'll definitely make this again, but next time I'll add a lot more chorizo to make it more meaty (we love it). I didn't include the broccoli as my hubby isn't a fan. Definitely a keeper!
I made this this weekend as part of a Halloween party for my son's baseball team, it was a total hit! I have made it before with just the meat and tomatoes, no broccoli, but used the broccoli and it disappeared even faster than it usually does. I don't know why I'm surprised, broccoli and cheese sauces go together like pb & j! I used half chorizo, half ground beef, and I think next time I will try it with canned chili, but the presentation of the bread bowl filled with this was definitely a hit. Thanks!
This is standard football and comfort fare for us, HOWEVER - no one I know anywhere (I'm from the south - that's probably why) adds BROCCOLI to their velveeta cheese dip. Somehow, that just is wrong to me, but the rest of it is fantastic!!!!
