Ingredients
  • 8 oz. chorizo bulk sausage
  • 10 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 Tb butter
  • 2 Tb flour
  • 12 oz. evaporated milk
  • ¼ c Neufchatel cheese (light cream cheese)
  • ⅔ c diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  • Crackers, Chips, Bread or Pretzels for dipping
Instructions
  1. To begin, you will need 8 ounces of chorizo sausage. Ideally you would want bulk sausage, but if you can only find sausages, you’ll want three that are about bratwurst sized. If you are using those, slice open the casings and take out the filling.
  2. Shred the sharp cheddar cheese. Set it aside for now.
  3. Sauté the sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat until it is cooked through and crispy. While it cooks, use your spoon to break up the sausage into little bits and stir it continually.
  4. Scoop the sausage from the skillet, place it on a plate that is lined with a paper towel.
  5. To the drippings that are still in the skillet, add in the butter. Melt it over medium heat.
  6. Sprinkle in the flour and whisk them together. Then let them cook together for one minute.
  7. Pour in the evaporated milk, and whisk together. Bring this up to a gentle simmer and cook for a minute – stirring continually.
  8. Reduce the heat to low and add in the Neufchatel cheese and half of your shredded cheddar cheese. Stir until it is melted in. Do the same with the other half of the cheese.
  9. Add in the diced tomatoes with green chilies.
  10. Finally, add in most of your cooked chorizo and stir it all together. Reserve some of the chorizo to sprinkle on top as a garnish before serving.
  11. Enjoy!
