Creamy Chorizo Cheese Dip Recipe

Chorizo and Cheese Dip

I started making this recipe after having it at a local restaurant.  I SWEAR they use Velveta cheese as the base.  Fry up the Chorizo and add to the cheese – couldn’t be any easier.  At the restaurant downtown, they serve it in a cast-iron skillet pan.  This is a great way to keep the dip nice and toasty if serving with a meal.  Just be sure to have a plant or wood player under the hot skillet.  I hope you enjoy this super easy recipe!!!

More About The Creamy Chorizo Cheese Dip Recipe Ingredients

Not the healthiest of appetizers but you don’t have to eat the entire dish.  I find using Kroger brand melting cheese is much cheaper and even tastes better than the brand name cheese.  Give it a try and tell me what you think.

NOTE: Add some pickled jalapeno peppers to the prepared cheese for those who like it spicy.  I also enjoy this cheese poured over a taco or even Mexican theme casseroles. 

Chorizo is a Mexican Chorizo is a highly seasoned chopped or ground pork sausage.  I have also found chorizo in beef and chicken at local markets.  Mexican chorizo is made with fresh (raw, uncooked) pork.  I have sampled some from the Mexican market but prefer the local store-bought chorizo for this Creamy Chorizo Cheese Dip Recipe.
