1 pound of sausage-I use mild, but use whatever you want
2 cups of sharp, shredded cheese
8 oz. cream cheese (at room temperature)
8 oz. sour cream
1 can of small green chilis--You will find these on the aisle with the Mexican food.
1 french loaf--Wal-mart has the big one like I have pictured. Publix carries long, skinny loaves, so buy 2 of those.
Salt and Pepper to taste
You will also need whatever you want to eat it with. I like tortilla chips, but some people just like the bread.
You will need aluminum foil, too.
Brown and drain your sausage.
Mix together all of the other ingredients in a bowl. See, I told you that it was easy! Save just a little bit of the cheese to top the loaf with at the end.
Add the sausage, and mix it well.
Put your bread on a cookie sheet and cut around the edges. Then, I always make a cut down the center because I find that it is easier to remove the bread in the middle that way. Do whatever works for you!
Carefully start removing the bread in the center to create a bowl to hold your sausage mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the bread bowl.
Cover it with foil, and bake it for 35 minutes at 350.
Save the bread that you pulled out from the center to use as dipping pieces.
