Chorizo and Onion Dip

Chorizo and Onion Dip with CheeseI brought this to a potluck recently and it was a huge hit! It’s got a nice bit of heat from the chorizo, with the creaminess of the cheese. It was great for scooping with tortilla chips and I had several people asking me for the recipe.

8 ounces chorizo sausage
1 medium white onion, diced
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
3 green onions, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
salt, to taste

chorizodip2In a small skillet  over medium heat melt the butter and add the onions. Cook for about 15 minutes until they become caramelized and soft. Remove any castings from the chorizo and chop it up. In another small pan over medium heat, cook it for about 10 minutes and allow it to brown a bit.

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl mix together the cream cheese and mayonnaise. Stir in half of the mozzarella cheese, the onions,half the green onions and chorizo. Add a bit of salt. Top off with the other half of the mozzarella cheese and green onions. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes -until the cheese is staring to brown and bubble.  Serve hot with choice of side for dipping. Enjoy!
