This easy recipe for creamy sausage bean dip is perfect to serve warm at parties. It is made with cream cheese, sausage and pinto beans. This cheesy dip is easy to make ahead and then put in the oven right before serving with tortilla chips.



16 ounces Italian Style Turkey Sausage
1 small Sweet Onion, diced
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
2 Tbsp White Vinegar
8 ounce package Cream Cheese, cut into chunks
15 ounce can Pinto Beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, finely shredded
Tortilla Chips for serving


In a frying pan over medium heat cook the sausage, onion, pepper and garlic about 8-10 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink and the onion is translucent.

Add the salt, thyme and vinegar. Stir to combine.

Add the cream cheese in chunks. Cook while stirring until the cream cheese is completely melted and mixed in.

Add the pinto beans and cheddar cheese. Stir to combine and remove pan from heat.

Pour the bean mixture into an 8x8 baking dish or 2 quart baking dish. Top with the finely grated parmesan cheese.

Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling around the edges.

Serve warm with tortilla chips or toasted gluten free bread.
