Smoker (If you do not own a smoker you can make this recipe in an oven or crockpot)
Cook sausage according to instructions on the taco seasoning packet.
Combine American melting cheese, cooked sausage, cream cheese, soup, jalapeños, onion, chili tomatoes, and minced garlic into the recyclable aluminum pan if you are using a smoker or an oven. If you are using a crockpot, put the ingredients directly into the pot.
If you are using a smoker, smoke pan of ingredients at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour. Stir ingredients together and let smoke for another 30 minutes and serve.
If you are using an oven, preheat to 225-250 degrees. Wait until ingredients are melted in order to stir together and serve.
If you are using a crockpot, set on high until ingredients are melted. Stir ingredients together and place crockpot setting on low to keep dip warm and serve.
