Cheezey Chorizo Dip

While on the topic of football, I thought I’d share with you this fantastic dip that is the perfect complement to a Sunday afternoon of watching your favorite team get beat by the Bengals.  Ahem, um…I meant, watch your favorite team play my favorite team – the Bengals!    To be entirely honest with you, regardless of who wins, as long as there’s good food to keep me entertained while watching the game, I will root for anyone.  The Bengals, the Jets…the Referees.  What’s really important is that this dip, without doubt, lives up to the expectations of my two most favorite and completely overused words — simple and good!  

  • 1 lb chorizo
  • 2 cups pepper jack cheese
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tbsp tabasco
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk

In bowl combine the cornstarch with the two cheeses, toss to coat and set aside.  In sauté pan, cook chorizo, onions and peppers until sausage is cooked through and until onions and peppers begin to soften.  Add the milk, cream and tabasco and bring to boil.  Once it begins to boil add the cheese gradually while whisking.  Continue to whisk until dip becomes smooth.  Serve with tortilla chips.

  1. Do I have to watch football to eat this dip?

    • I should have specified; You do not have to be watching football to eat this, however if you are watching football while eating this, it will make your experience much more enjoyable!

  2. La receta me parece muy rica, pero de España creo que sólo tiene el chorizo.. De hecho, se parece más a México.
