This creamy Chorizo Queso Dip is a blend of chorizo, melted cheese, onions, and other delicious seasonings. Perfect for any occasion!

I was introduced to chorizo for the first time a few years ago when HB took me to one of his favorite Mexican restaurants. I decided to be adventurous so I ordered chorizo tacos. They were absolutely amazing! I have been hooked ever since. Chorizo is a form of sausage that is typically found in Latin cuisine.

While shopping at Sprouts Farmers Market, I was excited to find out they had fresh, ground chorizo! Sprouts has 20 varieties of nitrate and MSG-free chicken and pork sausage made right in the store. They also have all-natural meats made with natural ingredients, and they are all made from scratch. I added chorizo to my basket, because I knew exactly what I was going to prepare. I love that I found everything that I needed at Sprouts for my super, fun recipe!

With chorizo, you don’t have to add any seasoning before you cook it. It’s perfection. I love it in pasta, on a salad, and now my new favorite—a cheesy, appetizer dip!

I’m still celebrating the new year, so that means entertaining…with food! I really enjoy preparing fun meals for my family. Besides, football season is not officially over yet (Go Blazers and Roll Tide)! You know you can’t watch football without good eats. And there’s basketball season, too! The great thing about this dip is that it’s super easy to make and you can make it any time of the year!

  • Please watch your cheese when broiling, because it will brown quickly. I don't mind a little crispy, browned cheese on top!
  • Multi-grain tortilla chips are a great healthy swap!
 
Enjoy and Happy New Year!
