Lynda described this dish while the Herb committee was making the Christmas luncheon favors. I had to find it as it made my mouth water. While not the most attractive dish, it is one of the yummiest! I served it at a party and it was the first empty plate. Even though a hot sausage is used, it it not scorching hot to eat.

Serves a bunch!
16 oz. package Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
8 oz. package Cream Cheese, room temperature
1 can Ro✯Tel Mild Tomatoes & Green Peppers (found in the Mexican food section)
- Sauté sausage in a skillet until browned. Break it up into crumbles as it cooks. Drain in a colander to remove excess grease.
- Mix the sausage with cream cheese and tomatoes. Do not drain the tomatoes.
- Put this mixture in a decorative baking dish and bake in a 350° oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Serve warm with tortilla chips. I like the blues myself.
