This cheesy dip is sure to be a hit at your next party. A cheese dip with caramelized onions, and a little heat from chorizo sausage. Great dippers are baguette slices, tortilla chips or veggies. Fair warning though, this will go fast so double the recipe if you have a large crowd. Enjoy!
2 C. onion, chopped
3 Tbsp. butter
1/8 tsp. thyme
1/2 chorizo sausage, about 6 oz.
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, at room temp.
1/4 C. mayonnaise
1/3 C. Monterey or mozzarella cheese
1/4 C. chopped chives or green onions
Remove chorizo from casing and cook in a medium skillet over medium high heat for about 10 minutes, chopping with a wooden spoon and stirring occasionally. Set aside.
In another skillet, melt butter over medium heat and add onion. Add thyme, season with salt and lower heat to medium-low and cook for about 20 minutes until onions become soft and caramelized.
In a medium-sized bowl add cream cheese and mayonnaise and mix well until smooth. Add cheese, caramelized onions, green onions and mix well. Gently fold in chorizo. Pour into a 2 cup baking dish.
Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degree for 12-15 minutes or until dip is golden and bubbly. Garnish with additional green onion and serve with baguette slices, tortilla chips or veggies.
