Chorizo Cheese Dip

Creamy, cheesy with a little heat, this Chorizo Cheese Dip is perfect for feeding a hungry party crowd.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion
  • 16 ounces ground chorizo sausage casings removed if necessary
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups nonfat Horizon Organic milk
  • 2 1/2 cups Horizon Organic Cheddar Shredded Cheese
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 15- ounce can diced tomatoes undrained
  • 1 15- ounce can yellow corn drained
  • 1-2 fresh Roma tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh scallions or chives minced
  • Kosher salt to taste


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and add diced onion. Cook, stirring often, until soft; 3-4 minutes. Crumble in chorizo sausage and cook until no longer pink. Drain grease from the pan, leaving about a tablespoon.
  • Add flour and stir to coat. Cook for one minute.
  • Whisk in milk and simmer until thickened; about 3-4 minutes.
  • Turn heat to medium-low. Stir in 8 ounces of cream cheese until melted, then add tomatoes, corn and 6 ounces of Horizon Organic Cheddar Cheese (reserve a small amount for topping, if desired). Stir until melted and combined, and continue to cook, stirring often, over medium-low heat until cheese is melted and bubbly. Season with salt if desired.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with diced tomatoes, fresh chives and reserved cheese, if desired. Serve hot with tortilla chips for dipping.
