Hissy Fit Dip

Posted by on Tuesday, April 9th, 2013


If you were raised in the South, you probably are familiar with the term “HISSY FIT.”  A HISSY FIT can be “pitched” or “thrown”.  In my childhood, I would often hear a friend refer to his or her mom pitching a HISSY FIT.  This simply means that someone or something had caused Mom to become quite agitated with said person or circumstances to the point where Mom would be come hot with anger and in a temper, throw or pitch a fit. I only know of 2 people who ever caused my own Mom to “pitch a hissy fit.”  One was my Dad.  I’m not telling who the other person was.

The name of this recipe is quite fitting since it will smack  your taste buds with a passionate dose of heat.  It can be used to dip crackers, corn chips, or even veggie sticks for those Low Carbers out there.  Whatever you choose to dip, this recipe is a welcome change to the typical Rotel/Velveeta dip.  It was a hit here at a family gathering.  I first heard of this recipe from Texas Recipes.com and of course changed it up a little.  There are different versions out there though.

Add the following to a preheated crock pot:

  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 8 oz Velveeta Cheese
  • 1 cup Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack, or White Cheddar Cheese
  • 8-16 oz cooked pork sausage (mild or HOT to suit your taste)
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • salt and black pepper to suit your taste

Stir ingredients occasionally until cheeses are melted and ingredients are well blended.  Serve with corn chips, saltines, or sliced veggies.  Leftoever dip can be stored in fridge and reheated in the microwave or crock pot IF there are any!
