Chorizo Dip is a party must have! Loaded with chorizo, refried beans and cheese. Serve it hot with your favorite chips!
Looking for the perfect game day appetizer? Then look no further than this Hot Chorizo Dip. Think of it as a kicked up bean dip. It’s cheesy. It has chorizo and spicy jalapeños. Serve it hot with your favorite chips and it is sure to be the hit of your party.
Just in case you don’t know, Chorizo is a type of sausage that originated in the Iberian Peninsula. It is a highly seasoned sausage made with pork. It is very popular in both Spanish and Mexican cooking. Chorizo is one of our favorite proteins. I use it often, whether I’m making Chorizo Tater Tot Casserole, stuffing it in some Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños or Chorizo Black Bean Taquitos.
It also happens to be epic when you mix it with refried beans and turn it into a Chorizo Dip. Lets talk about what you need to make it.
You only need a handful of ingredients to get Chorizo dip on your party table!
This Chorizo dip is easy to make! It can be made in one pan on the stove then transferred to a baking dish just to melt the cheese on top. Follow along with these step by step photos to see just how easy it is.
STEP #1: Brown the chorizo in a large skillet. Cook until cooked through. Drain but reserve 1 tablespoon of pan drippings. Set chorizo aside until ready to use.
STEP #2: In the same pan that you cooked the chorizo in, cook jalapenos and onions until softened. About 2 – 3 minutes. Return the chorizo to the pan, add in the beans, cumin and half of the cheese. Cook until beans are warmed through and cheese has melted.
STEP #3: Add the chorizo dip to a small baking dish. Top with remaining cheese and place under the broiler just until the cheese is melted, 1 – 2 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions, serve hot.
This Chorizo dip is great when served with tortilla chips. You could even try making your own Homemade Tortilla Chips or Homemade Pita Chips.
This dip reheats well! If you want you can put some more cheddar cheese on top so that you have a cheesy top. Then cover and bake at 325 for 20 – 25 minutes or until warmed through. Uncover and turn on the broiler for 1 – 2 minutes to melt the cheese on top.

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.
