❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
We love the combination of sausage and artichokes, but then you throw in the green chilis and it takes this dip to the next level. Everyone who has tried this dip loves it, is always surprised but what the ingredients are. We use a cheese blend, plus the cream cheese and sour cream and it’s so creamy.
- Cream Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Pork Breakfast Sausage
- Mild or hot green chilis
- Romano, Asiago and Parmesan Cheese blend (see tip section)
If you like heat and spicy, you will want to use “hot” pork sausage and “hot” green chilis. We personally don’t like that level of heat but if you do, then switch those two ingredients out!
🍽️HOW TO MAKE
The one thing about crock pot dips is they are so easy to make! Very little prep and the crock pot does all the work!
Over medium heat brown the pork breakfast sausage.
Combine, sour cream, cream cheese, green chilis, artichokes, and sausage in the crock pot. Turn on high and cook for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add 1 cup of the cheese blend and stir and continue cooking until bubbly and serve.
I always add the sausage last, so it heats up the cheese. That is my little tip for cooking faster. I also think this dip is great really hot, so I let it cook until it’s bubbling. The cheese blend can be found in the cheese section of the store. The grocery will also have this in a “fine” shred, which integrates into the dip better than the larger shred, which will become very stringy. Both are good, but the fine cheese (like parmesan) is best.
The cheese blend really adds flavor to this dip, so you can add as much as you want to it. We start with a cup and go from there.
SERVE THIS WITH
We love this with tortilla scoops or frito scoops! Both are perfect dip chips! If you’re having a gathering and planning to serve a few appetizers, these are all great:
❓FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Yes, you can, you just want to heat up the cheese and add the sausage and other ingredients, however it may stick, so don’t walk away. It’s much easier in the crock pot.
No, we like the juice it’s a great addition to the dip.
STORING AND REHEATING
We often just store this in the crock pot and turn it back on low when it’s time to reheat it. You can always reheat it in the microwave.
