Cast Iron Cheesy Chorizo Dip


  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • cup white onion
  • 1 lb chorizo I used chicken
  • 3 tbs cream cheese
  • 2 cups monterey jack
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • optional for toppings: green onion, avocado, cilantro, guacamole, tomatoes


  1. In a cast iron, cook chorizo breaking it up into pieces. Once cooked, place on a plate with a paper towel to drain some of the grease.

  2. In the same pan, add olive oil and cook onion. Stir frequently so it doesn't burn.

  3. Melt in cream cheese and stir, letting it melt. Add in chorizo. Mix well until combined. Add in sour cream and combine.
  4. Once all combined, top with monterey jack cheese over the whole thing.

  5. Serve with your favorite dippers: chips, bell peppers, carrots, etc.

Recipe Notes

If you don't like sour cream, you can use more cream cheese or use greek yogurt. If you don't have a cast iron pan, you can use another oven safe pan or you can cook all the ingredients, mix together and then put in an oven safe dish for baking.
