I wanted to give full credit to this recipe to my boss. He makes it every time we had a potluck and was always happy to share the recipe. I would just call it Ty’s Sausage Dip. A few days ago I got with him and told him that I was going blog and wanted his permission. He said it was ok, and emailed me a copy of the recipe. In casual conversation with someone else I mentioned how I was making some and was planning to blog it when she showed me a copy of virtually the same recipe from a chain email sent in 2007. So we may never know who originated this recipe but many people give their thanks!
So let’s get started on your having the most craved dish at your party. First, about an hour before you start with the dip allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature.
While the cream cheese is out and warming to room temperature, this is a great time to chop and dice the onion, red bell pepper, jalapenos, and tomato.
Now that we’re ready to cook we put a pound of hot sausage into a skillet over medium heat. To this we add the onions
On top of the onions we add the red bell pepper and jalapenos.
Allow to cook while stirring and breaking up the sausage until the sausage is brown. Turn the heat down to low and let cook further until all of the vegetables are tender.
Put the softened cream cheese into a large bowl (hint: if the cream cheese is still hard put in the microwave for no more than 20 seconds at a time until it’s soft but not melted)
Bringing it all together
Pour the sausage/vegetable mixture ontop of the cream cheese and stir to melt the cheese and combine evenly.
Next, add the can of green chilies, the diced tomatoes, and the sour cream.
Mix this all together until thoroughly combined. At this point you could put it into small bowls to microwave and serve, or you could put it in a slow cooker on low/warm. The best results though are when you put this in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors meld and serve in a slow cooker or small bowls the next day
