Smoky Chorizo Cheese Dip

Everyone needs a hot cheese dip in their life.
This Smoky Chorizo Cheese Dip is that dip!

You know what is fun?  Having your girlfriends over for drinks and yummy eats.  I did this last weekend and after they left I thought to myself, "why don't I do this more?"

My friend who sells Wildtree products gathered a bunch of us together and I offered up my house {we did just put on a new deck} for the fun.  Why not?  So we drank and ate and laughed {a lot} and drank and ate some more.

It really was the perfect night.  The weather was gorgeous and the company was even better. And I served this Smoky Chorizo Cheese Dip.  It was a hit!

This dip is incredibly easy because you dump everything in the crock pot and walk away. Come back once or twice to give it a stir and once it's all melted and ooey gooey you can dig in with a salty tortilla chip.

I remember fondly ordering a local restaurant's cheese dip to-go in college and my roommate and I would eat JUST THAT for dinner.  And if there were leftovers we'd eat it for lunch the next day.

God, what an awful diet we had.

Today, fast forward 15+ years later, I'm only eating the is dip occasionally and within reason. Would I like to eat it for a meal?  Probably, but my hips know better.

This dip has the added benefit of Spanish chorizo sausage.  This kind of pork sausage is loaded with smoky spices {paprika being #1} and makes any dish have incredible flavor.  I used it in breakfast burritos about a week prior and those were a hit, so I knew added it to this dip would win votes as well.

It's not that spicy, so don't freak out, but it is loaded with Mexican flavor.  Add to that creamy cheese, tomatoes, green chiles and other taco-ish spices and this dip won over everyone's heart.

And the leftovers have been eaten by my family all week long.  Like every night, no matter what we were having.  We didn't care if the meals didn't match - it was too good!

You know, I'm kinda a dip girl.  I've often said that if I would ever get a cookbook deal, I'd have a whole chapter devoted to them.  Here are a few more of my favorites, both cold and hot, yet equally delicious.
