Cheesy Chorizo Beer Dip

Cheesy Chorizo Beer Dip | My Life as a Mrs

The Miami Heat have made it to the finals!!!!! Woop woop! I’m not a big sports fanatic, but I do enjoy a good game of basketball every now and again (especially the NBA finals… and double especially if the Miami Heat are in the game!)


I’ve said it again and again, but I just LOVE game day eats! You get to eat a little bit of this and a little bit of that… and the majority of it is salty cheesy goodness (my FAVORITE).

Well now we’ve got one more dip to add to the rotation!

This, my friends, is the PERFECT accompaniment to game day.


Ummm if that doesn’t say game day, I don’t know what does!

Hubs said he could put it in a bread bowl and eat it with a spoon (he was dead serious). I prefer mine with some Pretzel Crisps, Celery, and carrots (a la fondue style!!). Total YUM!

Cheesy Chorizo Beer Dip

Yield: 2 1/2 cups

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Cheese. Chorizo. Beer. Need I say more?


1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup finely diced onion
1/3 cup finely diced pepper (I used green)
3.5 ounces cured chorizo, quartered & diced
2 rounded tablespoons all purpose flour
3/4 cup lager (or other beer)
1/2 cup whole milk
8 ounces medium cheddar cheese, shredded
4 ounces extra sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
2-3 dashes Worcestershire
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
salt & pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. When oil is good and hot, carefully add the peppers & onions and saute for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the chorizo and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow some of it's fat to render into the mixture. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir constantly allowing it to cook for an additional 45-60 seconds.

Add the beer and milk and allow the mixture to come up to a simmer and thicken a bit (4-5 minutes). When mixture has thickened a bit, add the cheese a handful at a time, stirring until it melts before adding the next handful. Splash in the worcestershire and the dried mustard and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste if desired and serve immediately.

Goes great with Pretzel Crisps, Carrots, Celery etc...

    This looks amazing! Personally, I am envisioning it on top a grilled hot dog, but of course I’d have to steal a few bites with chips first.
