The Ultimate Super Bowl Dip

8 Comments | Written on January 25, 2012 at 5:00 am , by

When it comes to the Super Bowl, I like to pull out all the stops for game day snacks.  The more ooey-gooey, cheesy, and indulgent the better.  The problem is, there are so many amazing and delicious dips out there, it is hard to choose just one to serve!

That’s why I love this “Ultimate Super Bowl Dip.”  It combines all my favorite flavors from a variety of different dips.   Not only do you have two different kinds of cheese, there is spinach, Italian sausage and peppers.  Red peppers for color and rings of sweet banana peppers for flavor.

Take this dip to a whole new level and serve with blue corn tortilla chips, bagel chips or warm baguette slices.  Come on!  It’s the Super Bowl, up the ante this year and serve the ultimate chips and dip your guests are sure to remember.

Cheesy Italian Sausage Dip  (click here to view and print recipe)

8 ounces bulk sweet or hot Italian sausage

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 packages (8 ounces each) reduced fat block-style cream cheese, softened

1-1/2 cups finely shredded Parmesan or Romano cheese

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup light sour cream

2 cups chopped fresh spinach leaves

1/3 cup mild banana pepper rings, drained and chopped

For serving:  Blue corn tortilla chips, bagel chips, or sliced baguette

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large skillet, cook sausage, onion, red pepper, and garlic until sausage is browned, stirring often; drain off fat and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, stir together cream cheese, Parmesan, milk, mayonnaise, and sour cream.  Add sausage mixture, spinach, and banana peppers; gently stir to combine.  Spread the mixture into a 9-inch fluted quiche dish or deep dish pie plate.  Bake about 30 minutes or until bubbly.  Serve hot with bagel chips, tortilla chips, or baguette slices.  Serves 8-10.
