  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 2 large sweet red peppers, finely chopped
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Tortilla chips


  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, 6-8 minutes, breaking it into crumbles; drain.
  2. Place red peppers, jalapenos and sausage in a 3-qt. slow cooker; add milk. Cook, covered, on low until peppers are tender, 5-6 hours.
  3. Stir in cheeses. Cook, covered, on low until cheese is melted, about 30 minutes longer. Serve with tortilla chips.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
