Chorizo Queso Dip -Lots of gooey, melty cheese with spicy chorizo mixed in is sure to make game time even better!
Living in Colorado, all you have heard about for the last week is Peyton Manning. Leading up to the game on Sunday the talk was all about him beating the record that Brett Favre held. Now, it is all about how he did break it, and how much farther can he go. My husband and I were actually in Denver over the weekend, but did not go to the game. Tickets were obscenely high priced, because everyone wanted to see him break the record. Everywhere you turned there were Manning signs, and people in Manning jerseys. On Monday, after he broke the record I was in my son’s school for something. Every 3rd kid I saw had a Manning or Bronco shirt on. It is kind of crazy! Hoping that it dies down a little bit in the next couple weeks.
Because my guys are obsessed with all things football, I am always coming up with new snacks that we can have when we are watching the games. I am often times browsing Pinterest or Facebook while the games are one, but I am also all about the snacking! And it seems the cheesier the better with my guys. Philly Cheesesteak Dip was such a hit, I decided to do a little bit more of a Mexican version this time.
I made these Chorizo Egg Wraps a long time ago, and since then my son is always asking if I am going to use Chorizo in anything else. I finally decided it was time. Lots of gooey, melty cheese with spicy chorizo mixed in is sure to make game time even better! I used a little beer in my cheese sauce, because….well, does there really need to be a reason? Serve with chips, use as a topping for Nachos, or even part of the filling for tacos or burritos. No matter how you decide to serve this, it will be gone quickly!
