Cheesy Hissy Fit Dip

“Hissy Fit Dip” is a popular Southern party dip that typically consists of a blend of cheeses, sour cream, mayo, and various flavorful ingredients. The addition of “cheesy” in front of it suggests that it’s an even richer, cheesier version. Here’s a recipe for Cheesy Hissy Fit Dip:


  • 1 pound ground sausage (spicy or mild, based on preference)
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Tortilla chips or crackers for serving


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground sausage until browned and fully cooked. Drain excess grease and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream until well blended.
  4. Add the cooked sausage, shredded cheddar, shredded mozzarella, grated Parmesan, diced tomatoes with green chilies, chopped green onions, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried parsley flakes, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are evenly combined.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the dip is hot and bubbly, and the top is golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
  8. Garnish with additional green onions if desired.
  9. Serve the Cheesy Hissy Fit Dip with tortilla chips or crackers.
