"This was ok but lacking in flavor. Followed to the T and all we could taste was the sour cream, very overwhelming. I ended up doctoring it up for some flavor. I have made one similar with cream cheese, rotel and chilies and it is much better."

"This dip is ok, but the tomatoes and sour cream make a tanginess that's a little out of place. There was a recommendation to axe the sour cream and use all cream cheese; I'd probably try that before making the original recipe."

"We look forward to this (full fat) dish once a year on Super Bowl Sunday. The only thing we do differently is subbing in Italian or Mexican sausage for the bulk pork - just squeeze it out and go from there."

"I make a recipe similar also. I use 1lb of hot pork sausage, 1 1/2 (12oz) Philadelphia cream cheese and 1 can of Rotel Tomatoes. Service with tortilla chips. I have gotten many rave reviews. This way is easier than this recipe."

"Everyone loved this at my son's birthday party. You totally can cheat and use a can of Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies instead of chopping up your own tomatoes. I really don't think anyone would know."

Rotel is a brand name of diced tomatoes that have chilies in them. You can find them where you find other diced tomatoes. They are great.

"I used low-fat cream cheese, fat free sour cream and some sausage flavored TVP to make this healthier. It still tasted great with a lot less fat."
