3 Ingredient Sausage Cream Cheese Vegetable Dip
I love dips! No fork, spoon or knife needed. Whatever vegetable I have lying around works great. This 3 ingredient sausage cream cheese dip is perfect for veggie dipping!
And most dips are pretty flexible when it comes to customizing flavors.
My husband and I have been devouring this dip with tortilla chips since we were poor starry-eyed newlyweds, when my husband’s awesome cousin introduced us to it.
This dip has been there for us through countless movie marathons, potlucks, pregnancy cravings, New Year’s Eves, and game nights. Always with tortilla chips.
A few years ago I was struggling to find yet another meal replacement for my husband, who was doing another modified Atkins diet stint.
I’ve never been huge on meat, so those stints were quite a challenge for me as the family cook.
I was looking through my recipe box when I came to this Sausage Cream Cheese Dip and I knew we had to figure out a way to be able to have it with Atkins.
Of course the answer was vegetables. (Though it did cross my mind to just eat it with a spoon…)
Keto Sausage Dip is a Crowd Pleaser!
So many of my new keto recipes are makeovers of old favorites, but this is one that I didn’t have to modify. The dip itself has not been tampered with in all it’s creamy glory.
However, if you do want to tamper with it, you can totally do that. Sometimes I like to use the maple sausage instead of plain (it doesn’t add carbs!).
Or if the tomatoes with mild chilis isn’t spicy enough for your taste, add another can of hotter chilis or a bit of your favorite spicy salsa to this keto sausage dip.
We’ll be skipping that addition ourselves–my husband says eating shouldn’t be painful–but feel free to burn your buds if that’s your thing!
Veggies for Your Easy Keto Sausage Dip
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but watch your vegetable intake.
This is one thing that’s still had for me to believe with keto, but I understand it when I think it through. Some vegetables are higher in carbs than others.
For some people, especially those with medical conditions they’re trying to heal, this is something they need to be aware of.
Personally, I’m not to the point yet where I am watching my vegetable carbs. Right now I’m just happy if I can say no to my kids’ Fourth of July parade candy.
But for those of us who are in the research and prep phase of the keto diet process, it’s still handy information.
I don’t miss the tortilla chips at all. This keto sausage dip is amazing no matter what you dip into it!
