2 T + 1 tspcanned diced jalapeños, I don't drain the liquid.
16ozsour cream, can use light
1tablespoondried chopped onion*
In a large pan over medium heat, brown the sausage. Crumbling it up into small pieces as you go.
Once the sausage is brown and cooked all the way through, drain any liquid. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, diced jalapeños, dried chopped onion, and onion powder.
Turn heat down to medium-low. Stir until cream cheese is melted and all of the ingredients are incorporated
Serve warm with tortilla chips.
*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.
