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!
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.
Chorizo Green Chili Dip
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 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!
