If it's not a family secret, would you mind sharing that dip recipe? It sounds like exactly the sort of thing we'd love!

Its so easy ....

1 block of softened cream cheese and 8 oz of sour cream -   beat it together until smooth.  Add some salt, cumin, chili powder ... or leave plain.  Place in the bottom of pie pan or baking dish. 

Fry up 1 lb of sausage or chorizo until really browned and drain off grease.  I use hot sausage , but you can use breakfast and add some pepper.  Mix in one jar ( 8 oz  - sometimes I use 2 jars ) of salsa.  Spread over the cream cheese mix.  Top with cheese, olives, diced peppers and bake at 400 until hot and bubbly.

For a vegetarian version I will fry up some peppers, onions, mushrooms and add some corn and black beans - instead of the sausage.

Its really easy to use whatever things you like. Very hard to go wrong.

I need to try this.  I make one similar.  Block of cream cheese softened and spread in a pie plate, pour a can of chili over it and top with cheese.  Bake until hot and bubbly.
