Where oh where do I begin with this dip?  Maybe with the fact that it was originally made and posted as a tribute to football-loving men but that the first time I ate it was with a bunch of my best girlfriends.  Yep, that’s about right.  I should also say that in the 6 weeks since the first time this dip was consumed (errr…devoured), it has shown up, not so surprisingly, again in my house two more times.  And each time, I swear people think this dip makes me a genius in the kitchen.

I’m certainly not feeling like a domestic kitchen goddess recently since I’ve come thisclose to royally screwing up two cheesecakes in the past two weeks but this cheesey chorizo and caramelized onion dip makes up for all of those mistakes.  The dip, in and of itself, is one sent from the heavens.  It’s base is a mixture of sweet caramelized onions, spicy chorizo sausage, cream cheese, and mozzarella cheese and when baked, you’ll need to to exercise the utmost restraint.  You’ll want to bathe in this dip.  You’ll want to huddle in a dark corner with this dip and a bag of Fritos.  You’ll not want to share.  But if you want to spend the next 48 hours in the gym working this dip off your holiday hips, I suggest you pass the spoon.
