I want to make the sausage gravy but I will use “hot”, loose Italian sausage and add a few finely chopped jalapeños and serve it as a hot dip with fresh fried tortilla chips. What do you think?
Sounds like a winner to me!

Will your spiral bound cookbook for Instant Pot ever be back in stock? I really wanted a copy but can’t find one anywhere new or used!
I’m sorry but I’m not selling it anymore. I do have a pdf version you could buy and possibly print off: https://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/order-your-cookbook-now/
