This year, we decided to make Hot Sausage dip- a recipe that was cleverly inserted into a gift I received this Christmas from Kris' Aunt Diane.
Look at that printed recipe!
Step 1: Dice up a pound of processed cheese. No, this isn't going to be a very healthy or natural recipe...
After softening some onion and garlic, add in a pound of lean ground beef and 1pd of jimmy dean sausage roll. We couldn't find any jimmy dean sausage roll and had to substitute.
The recipe says that once the meat is browned, to melt the cheese in the microwave and then add the meat mixture to the cheese. Not wanting to dirty another bowl (or maybe I just don't have another bowl) we cheated a little..
Clearly deviating from the recipe
Then we just threw in the rest of the ingredients: the can of jalapenos and our fake can of Rotel. We also added some garlic salt and cumin (well, I wish we added cumin. We were out and used ground coriander instead because this is supposedly similar)
General consensus? Might look like dog food, but it sure does taste good!
