Chorizo Bean Dip Recipe

Chorizo Bean Dip Recipe

With its zesty Mexican flavors and tempting toppings, this dish is the first to empty on the appetizer table. I serve it with extra-thick tortilla chips for some serious scooping.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1/3 pound uncooked chorizo or bulk spicy pork sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) refried black beans
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1-1/3 cups salsa
  • 2 cans (2-1/4 ounces each) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 2 cups guacamole
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup jalapeno-stuffed olives, sliced
  • Tortilla chips

Directions

  • 1. Crumble beef and chorizo into a large skillet; add onion and taco seasoning. Cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  • 2. Spread the beans into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Layer with the meat mixture, cheese, salsa and ripe olives. Cover and bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
  • 3. Spread guacamole over the top. Combine the green onions, sour cream and cilantro; spread over guacamole. Sprinkle with stuffed olives. Serve immediately with tortilla chips. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 48 servings.
