Reviews for Jalapeno Popper & Sausage Dip
"Very good and easy to make! Just used some locally made hot Italian sausage and I too used reduced fat cream cheese and lite sour cream and it turned out great."
"Drool worthy is my rating! I like lower calories if possible, so i used chicken italian sausage, 1/3 the fat cream cheese, and light sour cream, and it was absolutely declicious! It has a kick to it but isnt overwhelmingly spicy."
"I wasn't able to click 5 stars there is something wrong with the stars in the rating system, but this recipe is a 6. I took it to a family party and everyone loved it, they kept going to it throughout the day. Due to time constraints I wasn't able to cook the dip in the crock pot, instead I cooked it one minute at a time on high in a microwave safe glass bowl. When the dip got heated through I transferred it to a warm crockpot to keep it hot. The longer it cooked the better it got. I didn't use use spicy sausage I used regular Jimmy Dean's and I only added 2/3 of the 4oz. jalape?o can and after it cooked for a few hours it was very spicy, but I loved it that way and so did my family. I also served it with Fritos and Stacy's everything bagel bites. Yummy"
"This is an extra good recipe, you will like it a LOT!"
"Boy was this a hit over the holidays - everyone LOVED it! I made it just as is and it's perfect and so easy! Already planning to make it for the Superbowl party coming up! Thank you for a great recipe!!"
"My new favorite dip recipe. Thank you B. Slabik for sharing. Used regular ground sausage that I had on hand (not the Hot). So easy to prepare. I served with Sea Salt Pita Chips. Just excellent!"
"I've made this before without the sausage, but this is so much better. I used regular italian sausage and served it with a baguette."
"I made this for a Super Bowl Party......cooked it in the oven for approximately 30 minutes at 350 degrees. AWESOME!"
"I love the slow cooker convenience on this dip! The sausage was a nice addition. I used kielbasa instead of the italian sausage and added a tbsp of brown sugar. Yum!"
