Spicy Bean Dip
  • 4 ounces uncooked turkey Italian sausage, casings removed if needed

  • 1/2 of a small onion, finely chopped

  • 1 15 - ounce can reduced-fat refried black beans

  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese (3 ounces)

  • 3/4 cup bottled salsa

  • 1/2 4 - ounce can diced green chiles, undrained

  • 2 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese (optional)

  • 1 9 - ounce bag scoop-shape baked tortilla chips

  1. In a medium skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium-high heat until meat is brown, stirring to break up sausage as it cooks. Drain off fat. Transfer meat mixture to a 1-1/2-quart slow cooker. Stir in refried beans, 3/4 cup cheese, the salsa, and chiles.

  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. If no heat setting is available, cook for 3 to 4 hours.

  3. Stir well before serving. If desired, keep warm in the slow cooker on warm or low-heat setting for up to 2 hours. If desired, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese. Serve dip with tortilla chips.
