My best friend Jenn made this recipe for football party we were having at our house, and it was the hit of the night! You can make it as mild or spicy as you like. I have so many people asking me for this recipe, so I thought I'd share it on here. If you cannot find Italian sausage meat, you can buy the Italian sausage in the casing and squeeze it out. Enjoy with tortilla chips.

I've made this for our tailgates for the last 2 years and EVERYONE loves it. I've given the recipe out more times then I can count. So simple but crazy flavorful. It's also great with Ritz crackers. Read More

This is a great go-to in a hurry dip recipe that tastes great and allows you to change up according to your liking. I didn't layer I mixed it all up and baked. I also put it under the broiler for a minute to finish up browning. Read More
