You probably couldn’t find anything easier or tastier than this spicy sausage dip–and I assure you, it’s a crowd pleaser.   People go crazy over this dip!  So much so, and this is VERY true, that one our guests lopped two heaping spoonfuls of it onto his hot link.  Yes, he did.  The dip is just so creamy and savory, it’s downright addictive!  Serve with your choice of crackers or bread and you’ve got yourself a party.  I tend to serve this with tortilla chips or a sturdy appetizer chips.

Try it at your next party–I assure you, you won’t be disappointed! Enjoy!

Spicy Sausage Dip

1 (16 ounce) package pork sausage
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
2 large jalaepenos, seeds removed and diced
handful of grape/cherry tomatoes, halved
2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese; room temperature
hot sauce to taste ( I used Tapatio)
Cayenne Pepper

Cook the sausage in a skillet over medium heat until evenly browned and no longer pink. As sausage is cooking, break the meat into small pieces.  Drain fat.  Reduce heat to low, fresh tomatoes and jalapeno.  Cook for about 2 minutes until tomatoes are tender.  Add can of diced tomatoes and green chilies and mix well.  Finally, cream cheese until evenly blended. Cook just until heated through.  Add paprika, cayenne, and Tapatio (or your preferred hot sauce) to taste.  Serve warm.
