Chorizo Queso Dip -Lots of gooey, melty cheese with spicy chorizo mixed in is sure to make game time even better!

What is better with game day than lots of snacks?  Well maybe you want your team to win too. But I am all about the food!  And sometimes you just want to mix up your classic queso dip to make it even more special.

You could go with your basic beer cheese dip, but I think this queso dip recipe make it extra special and extra tasty!

So what is your favorite snack to make when watching the game?  Are you at Meatball Sub Egg Roll kind of person? Or do you want salty chips with some kind of dip?  Maybe a Caramelized Onion Dip?  I will take it all, I am definitely not picky.  Love the idea of making Crock Pot Nacho Cheese Dip so it is just on hand and ready when you need it!

Queso Dip is a staple for a lot of Mexican restaurants, and should definitely hold a place on your game day menu.  This queso dip recipe has chorizo added in!!  That means you get more protein, but also tons for spices and flavor from the chorizo.  This is not your average cheese dip that is for sure.

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?  Beer cheese dip might be one of the best things ever. 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!

  1. I am not a football girl but I sure love the food. And this one would go over well at my house. So much cheese, so little time.

  2. This is basically the ultimate comfort food, definitely craving this cheesy chorizo dip to devour right now – along with a good glass of wine.

  3. Mamamia! I’m not the biggest fan of football but I’ll definitely go for this on the next hockey game! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi Erin, great dish! How about adding it to the Food on Friday: Cheese collection over at Carole’s Chatter? Cheers
