  1. Remove sausage casing, if necessary. In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain well and crumble.
  2. In a large microwaveable container, heat cream cheese in microwave for about 1 minute. Add the green chiles; microwave 30 seconds and stir. Add half-and-half and sausage; microwave about 3 minutes until warm and stir. Add flour tortilla and cheese; microwave 2 to 3 minutes stirring until cheese is melted. Continue heating in the microwave until warm.
  3. Pour into a slow cooker to keep warm for serving. Serve with chips.
