I have a treat for you today. Something to make during the holiday season to take to potlucks or for large family gatherings. It can be made in advance and then re-heated. This appetizer is just amazing ..... oh so very addicting. Pop it in the crock-pot in the morning and it will stay warm enough to be dipped into all day, if it isn't all taken within a few minutes! A large four quart pot full just doesn't last long.
My niece Nicole brought it over during hunting season and I could not stay away from it. It was an old family recipe and I can see why it was so popular for so many years.
If you like Mexican .... you are going to LoVe this!
Hot Mexican Dip
1 1/2 pound lean hamburger
2 rolls of Jimmy Dean 'hot' sausage
2 pounds of Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
2 - 4 oz cans of green chilies
1 - 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 - 6 oz can tomato paste
1 - 3.8 can of sliced olives *optional*
1 - 4 oz can of jalapeno peppers *optional*
Brown the hamburger and Jimmy Dean sausage, drain well.
Place the meat and cheese in the crock-pot.
Once the cheese begins to melt, add chilies, tomato sauce, tomato paste, olives and peppers. Mix very well.
Once it has heated all through, serve with tortilla chips .... I happened to have guacamole chips.
Oooh, la, la. Delicious!
Remember to give your loved ones a hug!
