I love this oldie but goodie just as much as I did the first time I had it back in the 70's as a kid! Still the perfect quick and easy dip for a casual football party get-together! I always use homemade chili rather than canned, but canned can work for you if you don't have homemade on hand. Otherwise, you can use a can of Rotel Tomatoes and Green Chili, a little chili powder and cumin, and 1/2-1 lb. Hot Italian or Andouille sausage! Just as good! Enjoy, and get ready for some FOOTBALL! :)

Step-by-Step

  1. In small frying pan, saute sausage til done breaking up as you go. *If using andouille, remove casings and pinch off pieces into pan. Drain grease. Pour into medium-sized bowl.
