    They almost licked the bowl clean !! I used a HOT sausage, (Jimmy Dean brand), hot green chilies, used only 1/2 cup sour cream, increased the cream cheese to 1 1/2 cups. I used a canned tomato, petite cut, intended for use in a chili recipe, and to reduce the sweet of the tomato, added 1 teaspoon allspice. I made this in a 1.5 quart crockpot , and kept it on "WARM" during the party. Perfect.

    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.

    Love this dip. I, too found it and tried it for Superbowl. Everyone loved it. Since then I've made it for Easter and also this weekend "just because." Everyone enjoys this dip. The receipe didn't specify, but I use hot italian sausage when I make it. Thanks for a great 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.
