Pimiento Cheese Sausage Dip

YOU GUYS! I think I have a new favorite dip. I made this dip with inspiration from Price*s Southern Style Pimiento Cheese spread. I knew it would be good - but holy cheesiness, Batman - it turned out even better than I had expected. We just kept eating it and going back for more. And more. It's almost amazing in its' simplicity. The Price*s Pimiento Cheese spread really adds all the flavor. So instead of just using a plain cheddar cheese - using the pimiento cheese brings a ton of additional flavor to the party. It has all the seasonings and spices already added!
This dip is creamy and savory and only has a very small kick of heat from the hot ground sausage. Now, you could really add a lot more heat to this dish if you used a hot salsa and also used Price*s Southern Style JalapeƱo Pimiento Cheese Spread. And you can totally make it very mild by using a regular, non-spicy ground sausage as well as a mild salsa. Whatever your tastebuds prefer. It's that easy!
Ingredients:
1 (11 oz.) container Price*s Southern Style Pimiento Cheese spread
1 lb. ground sausage, hot
1 (8 oz.) block cream cheese
1 cup salsa
Directions:
Cook and crumble ground sausage until no longer pink. 
Drain excess grease and put ground sausage back into pan. Add in cream cheese.
And salsa.
Cover and allow cheeses to melt slowly over low-medium heat. Stirring frequently. 
Note: Do not allow mixture to come to a simmer.
Once mixture is combined and melty, serve immediately. 
Note: you can keep this mixture in a small crock pot on the "keep warm" setting while serving. 

Enjoy!

  1. Looks delicious. Have been eating Pimento Cheese since I was born, close to 7o years ago. It is very popular up here in New England. Here is a link to an article on it's origins which you might find interesting... http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/09/history-southern-food-pimento-cheese.html :-)
