If you’re hosting or attending a party for the big game day that’s fast approaching, you’re probably thinking one thing (besides who is going to win): what to serve. Why fork out money for take-out appetizers or frozen fare when you can easily make your own at home for a fraction of the cost? And better yet, they’ll be hot and freshly made, instead of lukewarm or freezer burned.
For an easy, filling, and incredibly tasty addition to your appetizer platter this year, try out these warm and cheesy sausage balls with creamy green chile dip. This winning recipe can be whipped up and out of the oven in less than thirty minutes. The best part? You only need a few ingredients to whip them up. The sausage balls are a mixture of all-purpose baking mix, uncooked sausage, shredded cheese, milk, and some Stubb’s spice rub. Mix ’em, roll ’em out, and pop ’em in the oven. The Stubb’s rub adds a pop of flavor to these warm, savory bites.
What takes this recipe to the next level is the accompanying sauce: this zesty dip is enhanced by the Stubb’s Green Chile Marinade’s flavors of Hatch green chilies, pineapple and lime juices, and jalapeno. It’s easy enough to whip up in less than 15 seconds.
Try out these cheesy sausage balls and green chile dip for your football party or any time you’re in need of a quick, crowd-pleasing finger food.
