Warm Chili Cheese Dip with Spicy Sausage

Ingredients

  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped 
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) Neilson salted or unsalted butter 
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) flour
  • 5 mL (1 tsp) chili powder 
  • 250 mL (1 cup) Neilson milk
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) Neilson sour cream
  • 450 g (1 lb) Armstrong medium Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 large spicy sausages, casing removed 
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) pickled jalapeños, drained, roughly chopped

  1. In a saucepan on medium heat, fry 1/2 of the chopped onion in butter for 4 minutes, until softened. Add garlic and flour, cook for 1 minute stirring constantly.
