Hot Chorizo Dip

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.

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces chorizo

    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!
