If I could only eat one chip dip for the rest of my life, it would be this sausage dip! It has the perfect amount of spice and creaminess. We make it every year for the Super Bowl, New Years Eve, and Thanksgiving.

My mother-in-law was the one who introduced me to this cream cheese sausage dip, and folks, it’s the greatest dip of all time!

How do you make a Sausage Dip?

  1. You need sausage. I use 1 lb of regular Jimmy Dean Sausage and 1 lb of hot Jimmy Dean sausage.
  2. Brown the sausage.
  3. Add the cream cheese and sour cream. Once that is all mixed in…
  4. Add the canned jalapeños (you can use fresh, but I always use canned, so whatever you want is just fine).
  5. Add onion powder. Stir to combine everything.
  6. Serve warm, with tortilla chips.

And if you’re lucky you might have leftovers. But I wouldn’t count on it 😊

Recipe Notes

*I use dried onion because that's what my mother-in-law uses when she makes this dip. If you don't have dried onion, feel free to chop up half and onion (about 1 cup or so) and add it when you are browning the sausage.
