Test Kitchen tips
- In a large skillet, cook and crumble beef and sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Stir in all remaining ingredients except garlic bread.
- Cook, covered, on low until heated through, 2-3 hours. Serve with garlic bread.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled dip in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally.
- One pound of Italian sausage may be substituted for the 1/2 pound ground beef and 1/2 pound pork sausage.
- Try topping this dip with sliced olives, pepperoni, or a shake of grated Parm and dried oregano for even bigger pizza flavor.
