No Whimps Allowed Sausage Chile Con Queso for the Blog Party BBQ!

Friday, 3 September 2010  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

Okay, KarenG is having a Blog Party BBQ at her blog over here; http://karenjonesgowen.blogspot.com/ Go there and meet a whole bunch of awesome writers to friend. I’ll be stopping by a satchel of them myself if not all this weekend.

And here’s my easiest recipe you’ll ever find, okay maybe just the best darn recipe you’ll ever find, alright how about a pretty good recipe you’ll ever find for Sausage Chile Con Queso:

  1. Fry up one package of sausage (spicy hot is better) (or tofu sausage for you town folk or any other kind of meat you have a hankering for) dump it, grease and all, into a crock pot (or you sissies can dab the grease away–whatever).
  2. Now cutΒ  a whole block of Velveta cheese into cubes and dump that in there too.
  3. Then you open a can of mushroom soup and slop that in there as well.
  4. Dump a whole can of petite stewed tomatoes into it.
  5. Okay, this might be a tough one, I know cuz I was back East and couldn’t find any chile, so we might have to compromise on this one. Go into your grocer’s frozen section and get a package of Bueno Autumn Roasted Green Chile (or any kind you can find, canned or a salsa–make sure it is hot–okay medium or mild for you whimps.) put that in the crock too.
  6. Turn on high until cheese is melted and then stir and put on low. You can add some shredded white cheese if you want a more sophisticated taste. At this point, it is ready to serve from the crock pot, or for you fancy schmancies, a crystal bowl. Serve with tortilla chips. Keep reserves in crock pot on low.Β 

That’s all there is to it. Now check out my blog about Parallelism or parallel parking or some jibber-jabber below. Hasta Luego, Amigos!

    OMG, I love the cover of that cookbook!!

    Hey, Brenda! I brought the margaritas! The chile con queso sounds TDF. I must make that. Stat.

  • So glad I stopped by from Karen’s bbq shindig! Now following on all your social networks. That yummy dip recipe is a staple down here in the Deep South…’specially during tailgating season, which kicks off for LSU fans tomorrow!

    I’ve got tons of Tasty Tuesday recipes at my blog, along with writerly tips and some humor. Come on by and visit when ya get a chance. And, ps? Cut out them sissy ‘maters and chili-huntin’ pains and throw in a can of Rotel instead! (Be glad to send ya a can if not available in your area. It comes in Mild and Hotter ‘n Hades.) πŸ˜€

    I better quit blog hopping for a while. I could swear I’ve already been here…maybe it was last night when you had another post up? LOL

  • Jan Morrison says:

    Hey Brenda – thanks for dropping by my site – Crazy Jane! This looks like a fun place to hang out so I’ll be back. I made pre-Earl chili last night – I may live out east but we’re no wimps when it comes to hot chiles in this house!! I used the fingerlings in my chili and cayenne …yummy! Your recipe looks great.
    And I notice you’re an airforce brat – me too! I’ve been to New Mexico – have you been to Nova Scotia?? The two places have something in common – it isn’t landscape obviously or weather but both places seem to attract quirky and laid back folk. Yay!

  • hey stopped by from liz Fich’s page my friend is always asking for recipes am directing her here.

  • Brenda Drake says:

    Thanks for the great comments.

    Liz – Love margaritas! My friends and I make raspberry margaritas. They’re delish!

    Angie – Never heard of Rotel, but I’m going to look around for it – especially hotter than Hades!

    Jan – I’m a relocated East coast girl. Been in Albuquerque for too long! I’ve never been to Nova Scotia, but would love to see it some day.

    Joanna – Thanks for coming on over. Try this recipe – the guys beg me to make it for every party!

  • Muy Bueno! I’ll take a strawberry margariti with my chile con queso lol!

  • MT says:

    Hello, I’m stopping by from KarenG’s. I love the look of your blog header. I’ll stop by again in the near future and check out your posts! Cheers. πŸ™‚

  • Jayne says:

    Hi Brenda! I am here from Karen’s lovely blog BBQ. Great recipe! πŸ™‚

    I also write under the influence of coffee (but, she whispers, more heavily under the influence of chocolate.)

  • Yaaaay, Brenda! Thank you for being my 150th Follower! Wow, you made my day! And you’ve got a dynamite blog I’m most happy to follow. And great dip recipe. LSU’s on tonight…what a great day!

  • Excellent sounding recipe. Now, I’m hungry.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting. Your visits are always welcome. Roland

  • catdownunder says:

    Miaou! That was hot! Purrowling in from Downunder via the blog party. Off to find water to cool down my fur!

  • echo1usa says:

    Oh my gosh, that sounds so good! I love anything you can dump in a crock pot and eat later.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  • Hola Brenda, the barbecue has brought me to your blog con mucho gusto. However, when it comes to spicy food, I’m very much a whimp! Am I still allowed to attend? πŸ˜‰

  • Brenda Drake says:

    Thanks for stopping by all!

    Kerri C – No problem. We’ll only use fresh strawberries for you!

    Kittie – I know, right? I was so exited for you! Woot!

    Roland – You’re always welcomed too!

    catdownunder – I love your name. I’d tell you to use honey to cool it down but then your fur will get all sticky. Yuck!

    echo1usa – Crock pots are the absolute best!

    Jennifer Lane – Even whimps are allowed — they’re just not allowed to eat the dip. Cussing will ensue cause it’ll burn your tongue. Honey and milk will cool it down, if you dare to try.
