  • 12 oz. hot Italian sausage, casings discarded, shaped into ½” balls
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c. BBQ sauce
  • 1 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, cubed
  • ¾ c. freshly shredded American cheese
  • ¾ c. freshly shredded cheddar
  • ¼ c. pickled red onions, finely chopped, plus more for topping
  • ¼ c. whole milk
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced, for topping
  • Tortilla chips, for serving
  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook sausage until deeply golden, shaking the skillet occasionally, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer meatballs to a plate and keep 2 tablespoons fat in the skillet.
  2. Return skillet to medium-high heat and stir in onions, jalapeño, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until golden and lightly caramelized, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add BBQ sauce, cooked meatballs, and cream cheese and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in shredded cheeses, pickled red onions, and milk until melty and incorporated.
  4. Garnish with scallions and more pickled red onions before serving warm with tortilla chips.
