Put this in front of the guys during the next game and watch it disappear! It's easy to control the heat by removing the seeds and ribs (the whitish membrane inside the pepper) before dicing to result in a dip that is mild, medium, or hot and spicy, to suit your taste. For a mild dip, remove all seeds and ribs. For a very spicy dip, leave all the seeds and ribs intact. Serve with sliced sourdough baguettes.

Different rich and delicious! I used turkey kielbasa low fat mayo and low fat cream cheese. I used pickled jalapeno rings chopped instead of a fresh jalapeno. It could have actually been a bit spicier for me personally. I also added a sprinkle of salt and pepper and used a 4 cheese pizza blend since I could not find the 6 cheese blend. Our company loved it served with pita and tortilla chips. No leftovers! Thanks! Read More

Mine came out very greasy. Swimming in grease actually. The flavor WAS delicious though. I think next time I'll change the way it's prepared but definitely not the ingredients. Read More

This dip was a huge hit at a 4th of July picnic. I doubled the recipe but did not double the jalapeno because we have several family members who don't do heat very well. Next time I'm making a "whimpy" batch and a "real" batch with extra jalapeno. Because I doubled it it took a little longer in the oven to heat through. I got asked to make it again for the next function. Also my brother seems to think that this recipe with a few additions (bacon and either chicken broth or cream to thin it out) would make an excellent soup. Anybody try that yet? Read More

My boys loved this-it was gone in minutes! I didn't have the cheese blend called for so I just used grated cheddar with a little parmesan. Also someone mentioned that it was greasy-I used leftover kielbasa so the grease had already cooked out of it. If I didn't have leftover I would just fry up the diced pieces first to remove some of the fat and then add it to the dip. Read More

Made this twice experimenting both times. Reading the reviews I first cooked the sausage a bit to remove some of the fat. Another change we made was to use Greek Yogurt in place of the mayonnaise. It was OUTSTANDING!! Read More

Great simple recipe. I was worried it would be a bit overwhelming with so much mayo and cream cheese but it was smooth and easy to eat with lots of flavor. PRO TIP use this dip with eggs in the morning; also mix a few spoon fulls into GRITS. SOOOOOOO Tasty. This simple dip could be used for a lot of different things. Read More

I dice the kielbasa and sauté it in a skillet then drain on a paper towel. I then chop the bottoms of the green onions jalapeño and habanero peppers (several of each) and sauté them in the drippings from the kielbasa then drain. I add to taste. I use the tops of the green onions without sautéing. I hollow out a round loaf of King's Hawaiian Bread fill with the mixture replace the "lid " wrap in heavy duty foil and follow baking instructions. I cut up the inside of the bread plus another round loaf into 1-1/2 inch cubes for dipping. Nothing but raves!! Read More
