Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place the sausage links in a dry pan over medium heat until they start to sizzle.
  3. Use a spoon or flat wooden spatula to break up the sausage as it cooks and cook until browned and crumbly, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Remove the sausage from the heat and drain the fat. (For best results, sear the corn, onions & fresh jalapeño in 1tsp of the drained fat or olive oil)
  5. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, 4 ounces cheddar cheese, corn, the cooked sausage, tomatoes with chiles, green chiles, jalapeño peppers, 1/2 cup green onions, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper, mixing until thoroughly combined.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and smooth out the top.
  7. Top with the remaining cheddar cheese and the cayenne pepper.
  8. Place the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake until the cheese has melted, and the dip is bubbling around the outside, about 30 minutes.
  9. Top with the remaining green onions and serve!
