Expert Tips

  • Make a south-of-the-border meal by serving this dip over baked potatoes. Or spoon it into tortillas, sprinkle with shredded lettuce and fold for an Mexican wrap.
  • Ground beef can be used in place of the chorizo sausage. Jazz it up by adding 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin and 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) when cooking the beef, onion and garlic.
