This three ingredient recipe will make you rethink all the preconceived notion’s about losing weight.
We have been doing our best to stay at home and keep a good attitude during this pandemic.
I don’t know about you, but when the going gets tough, I just want to eat junk food.
This recipe was turning into a favorite just before we hit stay at home orders. A friend had brought it to a potluck dinner, and when she explain how easy it was to make, I didn’t trust her until I tried it… and then I was hooked.
Three ingredients is about all the brain capacity I have while homeschooling my kids and trying to do all the things to keep our family together while working. But a girl’s got to have her snacks, so here we go:
Not-too-Spicy Italian Cheese Dip
(2) 8 oz. packages of cream cheese (can use reduced fat as well)
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes with green chiles
1 lb. ground Italian sausage
Place the ground sausage in a pot and brown until completely cooked.
Add in the can of diced tomatoes. Do not drain.
Stir and mix.
Add in the cream cheese, and turn down the heat on the stove for a low-and-slow mix.
Tip: cube the cream cheese before placing in pot.
Stir occasionally, until mixture is completely even.
Remove from heat and serve immediately if you wish. You can also transfer to a crockpot to take to a larger gathering. You would probably want to double the recipe in that case.
I love ours paired with celery, but you could also use blue corn tortilla chips for a crossover. Personally, I need the celery to balance out the fat in the dip. I would have never used the celery in the past, but I tried it while trying to stay 100% on plan during the Super Bowl last year, and I found that I preferred the celery and the crunch it gave (and the balance it gave) more than any unplanned chips ever could. I dare you to try it.
That’s it! If you can get it to last, the dip tastes even better the next day or the day after. We go through ours so fast, we don’t usually get to test that theory unless we hide it from the kids.
I hope you enjoy how easy and how simple and how tasty this recipe actually is. It was a game changer in our junk food department for our family. I hope it helps you too!
