Today I a watching some NFL Playoff football as they get close to determining which teams will play in the Superbowl. I really do not have a team that I love as much as I love my UCLA Bruins, but I do like the 49ers since the are a California team and I do love San Francisco. I used to watch and root for them when Joe was their quarterback. If you have to ask Joe who? Then you are probably a bit younger than me.
It has been an especially cold winter in Southern California this year, so I am looking for hot appetizers for game time. This one has chorizo and chili in it to give it a little bit more heat. This is a great appetizer for Superbowl parties or dinner parties.
1 cup whipped cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 4 ounce can diced green chili’s
4 oz Beef chorizo
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove casing from chorizo and brown in a small pan. Brown for about 5-6 minutes until chorizo is cooked.
Drain on a paper towel. Meanwhile, mix together remaining ingredients in bowl, add drained chorizo. Once dip is mixed pour into an oven-safe dish. Cook for 14-16 minutes.
Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.
Warning: This dip is highly addictive.
Will you be watching the superbowl? Do you go more for the football or the food & festivities?
