Tuscan Sausage & Bean Dip Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is a spin-off of a Mexican dip I had once. The original was wicked good, but I was going through an I’m-so-over-Mexican-dip phase and decided to switch it up. Take it to a party—I'll bet you no one else will bring anything like it! —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina

Very tasty and versatile. I used mild and hot sausage to balance out the taste. Thanks for sharing.

Used mild Italian sausage and left out the beans and served on pasta. Very good. Also used the wine not the broth and added a little extra to make it more saucy for the pasta.

This dip is absolutely delicious! I took it to a Super Bowl party last night. The husbands, intent on the game, just stuffed their faces. But the wives asked around to discover who had made it so they could find out what all was in it! I love the idea of adding pasta and making it a casserole so we can have it frequently. Definitely a keeper!

I have made this before and it is very good. There are never any leftovers. I might even try a little diced jalapeno for a litte more kick!
