Hot Chorizo Green Chili Dip

This hot chorizo and green chili dip is one of my game favorites. I have made it for several years and it always gets eaten very quickly. Made with cream cheese and green chili, it goes with pretty much anything. With the added flavor of chorizo it takes sports watching enjoyment to a whole new level!

This hot and cheesy chorizo dip is a fan favorite. Perfect for football viewing or as a fun warm appetizer!

I really do not have a team that I love as much as I love my UCLA Bruins in the NFL, 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.

Warning: This chorizo and green chili dip is highly addictive.

Will you be watching football this season? We love watching in live and on TV. I really love the sport if I have a team to root for, plus I love the food & festivities too!


Looking for a quick and easy hot dip for football season? This chorizo green chili dip is outstanding.


  1. I am only into football for the food. You will find me huddled around the food table trying to make a game plan on what to eat first 🙂 This dip looks amazing and I might have to start with that first!!!

  2. I only watch the Super Bowl as an excuse to eat snacks for dinner one night!! I love all the appetizer and dip choices! 🙂

      LOL! Yes The food is definitely the best. Sometimes the commercials are funny, but I haven’t seen a good one for a few years.

  3. This looks like a great dip to snack on while visiting blogs.

  4. Nope you don’t have to tell me who Joe is – I know him well. I knew I would marry my husband when he took me bowling and he pulled out a 49ers bowling ball! I’m going to have to try your dip it looks good. Thank you for the recipe.

  5. That looks AMAZING!

  6. Oh yum! This sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try it. Perfect football food. Glad to have seen it at Trick or Treat Tuesday.

  7. I have some frozen green chilis that would be perfect for this dip!

  8. I think I will put that on my list for Super Bowl Sunday! Thanks for sharing. I found you on Loves Bakes Good Cakes family friendly link party.

  9. Now that my beloved Green Bay Packers are out of the mix for the Superbowl, I think I’ll just have to console myself with a plate full of this awesome looking dip! Thanks for making sure I didn’t have to weep for too long!

    • Organizedisland says:

      Oh I’m sorry about your Packers! Yes I think this will help you feel better! 😉

  10. Wonderful! I love chorizo! My DH and I did a mission trip to Mexico and were hooked on the stuff ever since. As a matter of fact I make chorizo queso burritos and freeze them for breakfast most days!

  11. Yummy! I definitely love the food and the commercials when it comes to the Superbowl, but I would have been pretty happy to see the SeaHawks go! Ah well… It’s going to have to be the food and this looks amazing! I’ll be pinning this!

  12. Montana to Rice – TD! I remember those days. This dip sounds delish. I have to watch the game to keep up with the scores. So all my treats have to be ready to go at kickoff. At the half I can refresh. Thanks for sharing. Drop by my kitchen for a visit some time.

  18. This looks amazing and I have pinned it because I might make it for our Super Bowl Party. That being said…I could care less who is playing. I just love to have a party! I will pay attention to some of the commercials, but I will mostly just be yapping with friends. I grew up in Phoenix and ASU football, so I’ve seen my share of Bruins games.
