1 pound good-quality bulk sausage
2 tablespoons tomato paste
8 ounces cream cheese
12 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated and divided
1 (10-ounce) can tomatoes (such as Rotel)
1 bunch chives, chopped
- Preheat oven 350 degrees. In a large skillet, cook the sausage. Add tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes. Add the cream cheese and 6 ounces of cheddar and stir until melted. Add the tomatoes and blend.
- Pour mixture into an oven-safe dish and top with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Top with chives and serve with chips.
