I always make this at Christmas, Thanksgiving, birthdays, and football parties. It is great, easy, and goes fast.

I thought this sounded at little salty so I added an 8 oz. pkg. of low fat cream cheese I also added a little extra salsa to make up for it. It was delicious. The guests at my son's college grad party raved! Read More

Spicy! I scaled this recipe back to 6 servings for after school snack. Used 1/4 lb. gound sage sausage and 1/4 lb. fresh country mild sausage from the local butcher. To tame the spiciness I added 4 tablespoons of cream cheese. Served with tortilla chips. Read More

I made this for work and doubled the recipe. The crock pot was empty by noon. Everyone loved it and wanted my recipe. I did take another poster's advice and used 1 can of cream of mushroom soup instead of the mushrooms. I will definetly keep this recipe and use it often as it is quick and delicious. Read More

I've been making this for more than 20 years now. Folks are disappointed if I show up at a party without it. I use ground beef or turkey seasoned with a great chili powder from Savory. I also add a can of refried beans and extra chilies if I have them. Read More

Always a hit at parties. I love the mushrooms in this. I have changed this up quite often by adding mexican Velveeta cheese to give it a little more kick and ground beef instead of sausage. Read More
