  • A cheesy dip for all your tailgating and game days! This cheesy chorizo chili dip is so easy to whip up and all your friends will be wanting the recipe! Made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry; you will love how easy this is to prepare!

    I am so excited to share this cheesy chorizo chili dip recipe with you guys because hello: tailgating season/game days have officially arrived! This dip is the perfect appetizer to have at the table for snacking. Honestly, my favorite part of football season isn’t the actual game. I’m all about the food possibilities and the excuse to eat to my heart’s content on game days.

    This cheesy chorizo chili dip can potentially warm you up, too, on chilly days because of the heat from the chorizo sausage. What more could you ask for? An appetizer that can keep you warm, full, and satisfied? I’m thinking you need to make this immediately!

    This is a sponsored post by Hunt’s tomatoes. All opinions are my own.

    Okay, let’s run through the ingredients for this cheesy chorizo chili dip. It’s pretty much got everything that you would want in a stovetop chili but in a dip form. Chorizo sausage, black beans, Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste (which, can we talk about how AWESOME the concept of having them in POUCHES is?), Hunt’s petite diced tomatoes, cheese, jalapeños, and more!

    I can’t believe tomato paste in pouches has not been thought of until now. Freaking genius! I’m always so annoyed that you don’t use that much paste from a can and then you have to cover it with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge and then if you don’t use it quick enough, it starts to mold. With Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste, it’s a hassle-free way to add tomato paste to any dish with two tablespoons of pre-measured tomato paste – the most common serving size for recipes (like this one!). Nothing is different about this paste in a pouch as opposed to a can. It’s the same great 100% natural tomato paste found in the can.

    I really like that if I only need to use one tablespoon of tomato paste, I can just guesstimate by squeezing half of the pouch into the dish. And I really like that I can roll down the pouch like toothpaste to get it all out without waste. If I don’t need to use it all, I just throw it into a plastic bag and put it in the fridge. No mess. I love it! Next time you’re at the store, look for it where the canned tomatoes are!

    Josh would devour this!

  • Theresa says:

    This dip looks yummy! Tomato paste in a tube is one of my kitchen staples precisely for the reasons you mention. It’s the same shape as a toothpaste tube. If you google: tomato paste in a tube you’ll see all sorts of brands that are available. I get mine at Trader Joe’s and in a pinch can find it in local area grocery stores. It’s a great solution!
