Many of us may be Moms with Crock Pots, but we cook for men with appetites. With March Madness Basketball Games in full swing, I was looking for a great snack recipe and I found this one over at Dining At My Desk. It sounds fabulous!
Slow Cooker Spicy Sausage & Beer Cheese Dip
- 1 16oz. roll Hot Sausage (any variety), crumbled
- 1 small green pepper; seeds removed & finely chopped
- 1 small onion finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- 1 12oz. can beer
- 6 cups [or 3 8oz. packages] shredded cheese (such as Monterrey Jack)
- 1 8oz. block cream cheese, cut into cubes
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons Tabasco
- Salt & Pepper to taste
In a large skillet cook sausage, green pepper, onion, and garlic over medium-high heat for about 5-7 minutes or until meat is cooked through and vegetables start to soften. Drain any excess fat, then pour sausage and vegetables into bottom of slow cooker.
Add beer, shredded cheese, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, and salt and pepper to taste to slow cooker on top of sausage and vegetables. Stir everything to combine.
Cook dip on low for about 2 hours or until heated through and cheese has melted. Stir well. Remove cover and keep on low to serve warm.
You can cook the dip longer than 2 hours, but if it may thin out a little due to the condensation dripping from the top of your slow cooker. You can also substitute other vegetables for the onion and/or pepper or omit one. Other peppers such as jalapenos would also be a good addition.
