Yummy and Quick Appetizer

I got so many compliments on my Fiesta Dip recipe at my girlfriend party I thought I would share it with you today.  If you are needing a yummy easy to make appetizer this is a good one.

Easy to make and you put it in a crock pot.
So easy peasy.

In a fry pan you brown Jimmy Dean's pork sausage (small tube) and some green onions (about 4 to 5 chopped)  then add in cut up peppers.  I used one each  yellow, orange, red and green peppers.  I love the taste of all of these added together.

After you have added your cut up peppers to the browned sausage and onions.  You then add two bricks of cream cheese and stir until melted.

Then I added store bought pico de gallo.  I use the mild but you can spice this up with hot too.  Turn off your heat and add the pico and stir until well mixed.

Then I added one jar of mild banana peppers cut up.    Mix the banana peppers into the mixture.

You can add jalapeno's right into the dip or serve them on the side.  I served them on the side for those that wanted to add the heat.  I feel there is a lot of heat with mild jalapeno's but they also make a hot version for those of you that love intense heat!!!

I put the fiesta dip into one of my crock pots and turned it onto warm for the evening.  I served this dip with taco chip scoops and also Frito scoops.  Soooo yummy and I got lots of compliments on the taste of this dip.  It is a crowd pleaser.

You can make this dip up ahead of time and just keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.  I would set it on low for an hour or so before the party is to start to heat it through.  Then you can set the crock pot back to keep warm.

So easy and delish.  So if you need a good dip to take to your holiday party this is a great one.
I am making this to take as one of my appetizer's for Christmas Eve.

Have a great week.  Enjoy the fast pace days of this time of year.
