    We don't care for chorizo...think it will be just as good with ground beef? Looks and sounds delicious though!

    All I have to say is WOW. I am bringing this dip to a girls' night out gathering this evening. It is incredibly cheesy and the poblano pepper and pepper jack cheese spice it up nicely (I think next time I will add a jalepeno pepper instead, though). My husband cannot stop eating it! Thanks for a great recipe!
