With it being game week and all, I’ve got a couple game worthy recipes to share with you just in time. I figured that there wasn’t a a better way to start off Super Bowl week, or any week for that matter, than with this hot, cheesy, spicy dip. It’s full of all kinds of goodies: chorizo, onions, jalapenos, refried beans and cheese. Then to give it that extra oomph it’s topped with a little more cheese and broiled until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Your guests are sure to love it, that is…if you can share it.
I just developed this recipe a week ago and have already made this dip twice. All in the name of recipe testing of course. The first go around I put the cheese into the dip as it was cooking and served it like that. This time around I decided that, while I do like the cheese mixed in throughout it could really use a good layer of bubbly cheesy goodness over the top. Good choice I think.
Turn on the oven broiler.
In a pan cook chorizo until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Reserve 1 tablespoon of pan drippings.
In the same pan that you cooked the chorizo in cook the onion and jalapenos just until softened, 2 - 3 minutes. Return chorizo to the pan and stir in refried beans, ground cumin and 1/2 of the cheddar cheese. Cook until the beans are warmed through and the cheese has melted. Transfer dip to a oven safe small baking dish. Top with remaining cheese and place under the broiler for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove from oven sprinkle with green onions. Serve hot.
