Cheesy Chorizo Beer Dip  - The Foodie Affair

Remember when I told you about Michael’s birthday celebration and the Bourbon Molasses Bread Pudding I served in lieu of cake last week? Well, I didn’t tell you about the whole menu. We also had this cheese dip mixed with a pumpkin ale as an appetizer. It would have complimented a Latin American dish instead of the Southern-style meal I made a bit better because of the spicy chorizo and peppers in it, but when you have the perfect taste-testers together, food paring isn’t important.

I intended to participate in a recipe challenge using fall flavored beer, and I’m disappointed that I missed the date to sign up, but hey, I”m giving myself an A for putting it on my radar and having good intentions to participate!

Next. Time. For. Sure!

Author:
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 8 ounces chorizo (I used soy)
  • 1 jalapeño Pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 4-ounce can chopped green chilies
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 12 ounce bottle of beer (Ale or 1½ cup chicken broth)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • Tortilla chips, bread or vegetables for dipping
Instructions
  1. Heat the chorizo in a medium saucepan over medium breaking the soy in crumbles for about 2 minutes. Add the jalapeño, green chiles, cumin, and cayenne stirring until all ingredients are incorporated, about 2 minutes. Add the beer (or broth) and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and stir in the cheese. Stir until the cheese melts and the mixture is creamy, about 3 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, bread or cut up vegetables.

Sometimes I’ll make a recipe two or three times before sharing it on The Foodie Affair and adjust the ingredients each time. This one was a home run on the first try! Delicious gooey cheesy hot dip with a hint of ale in each bite.

I didn’t tell anyone that there was beer in the dip, but my daughter made a comment right away, “Is there beer in that?” I was impressed and proud that her palate is so refined 😉

This recipe passed the test for deliciousness right away, and I’m sure each one of us thought about licking the bowl clean!

Serve this for a crowd or anyone that appreciated tasty dishes made with fermented hops! It’s also delicious on a grilled chicken sandwich with dark rye bread, and freshly cut tomatoes.
