I saw this recipe on Katie’s blog a couple weeks ago and knew I had to try it. I’m so glad I did, because it was a hit and so delish. This would be perfect for any party and I can see myself making it a lot during sporting events at our house.
1lb of sausage, either hot or sage (I used hot)
1 8 oz block of cream cheese at room temperature (you can use fat free, but I did not)
1 cup of cheddar cheese shredded (reserve 1/2 cup)
1 cup of shredded monterey jack or pepper jack (reserve 1/2 cup)
1 jar of Peach and or Mango Salsa (I couldn’t find any fruit salsas, so I used cilantro)
Cook sausage, and then drain off fat.
Add Cream cheese to sausage, stirring to incorporate.
Add cheeses (1/2cup of each) until melted.
Stir in Salsa. Mix well.
Sprinkle in some cilantro.
Pour mixture into a 8x8 (or 9x9) baking dish.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes until cheese is bubbly
Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos
