Hot sausage dip – served with tortilla chips

While your New Year's Eve party might be a little smaller than you had hoped, this hot sausage chip is certain to wow your select guests.

The best thing? This dish can be made in advance and heated in the microwave.


One tin of Refried Beans

1lb sausage meat

Half a jar of Jalapeño Peppers

Grated cheese (cheddar, mozzarella) any cheese that will melt

Two jars of salsa

Tortilla chips to serve


Fry the sausage meat.

Spread the refried beans onto the roasting dish (I always use a disposable one - saves on the washing up).

Put the sausage meat on top.

Chop up the Jalapeños and spread on to top.

Smother with the grated cheese.

Cover with the Salsa.

Place in a preheated oven at about 180 and cook for about 30-45 minutes until the cheese starts bubbling up through the salsa.

Serve hot with Tortilla chips and a nice cold glass of wine or beer.

Happy New Year!
