Hot Chorizo Dip

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.

Hot Chorizo Dip Recipe

Serves 4 Prep Time: Cook Time:


  • 12 ounces chorizo
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, diced



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.

    This looks amazing!! I’m so excited to make it! I from California and live in Italy so sometimes I get hungry for some hometown flavors…like Chorizo! I can’t wait to make this! I think I might put it on a tostada with some diced avocado and maybe a dollop of sour cream! Everything is better with avocado! I love it so much but its expensive here so every time I have some, its a treat! Thanks for this great recipe!

    With baseball season about to start, this looks like a great addition to my nachos. Me and my dad love to sit back with a few appetizers and enjoy a good yankee game.

    You are a woman after my man’s heart; cheesy and chorizo, two of his favorites. I will have to make this when we are in the mood for a guilty pleasure. Great recipe!
