Ingredients

  • 2 8 packs Old El Paso Taco Boats
  • 1 ounce Taco Seasoning Click for Homemade Recipe!
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • 1/2 lb. hot pork sausage or regular, casing removed (Such as Jimmy Dean)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup Pale Ale beer or your favorite type of beer
  • 16 oz. Velveeta cut into 1” cubes
  • 1/2 c. Shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 can Rotel Tomatoes, undrained 14.5 ounce can
  • 1 cup black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Cut the Taco Boats in half width wise and place on a large baking sheet. Spray with olive oil spray (or drizzle with olive oil) and then sprinkle with the Taco Seasoning. Spray with more olive oil.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until the taco boats are browned and crispy. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • While the chips are cooking, begin your dip. Start by browning the sausage in a medium skillet over medium heat. Use a wooden spatula to crumble and turn the sausage as it cooks.
  • Once the sausage is cooked through, add in the beer and allow to cook down/reduce for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Stir in the Velveeta and shredded pepper jack. It should take about 3-5 minutes for all the cheese to melt in. Once melted, stir in the tomatoes, beans, and cilantro.
  • Serve immediately with the homemade chips. Enjoy!

Notes

***If making in a slow cooker, you can add all dip ingredients (cook the sausage fully first) into a slow cooker and cook on high for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Enjoy!
