8 servings


  • 8 ounces fresh pork chorizo

  • ½ cup sliced green onions, white and lighter green parts (green parts reserved)

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 poblano chile peppers, diced

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, diced

  • 4 ounces cream cheese

  • 8 ounces shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 4 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • ¼ cup sour cream


  1. Place chorizo, green onions, red bell pepper, poblano chilies, and jalapeno in a cold skillet. Turn heat to medium-high. As skillet comes up to temperature break up chorizo into very small pieces. Continue cooking until sausage is browned and peppers are barely cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat. If sausage releases a lot of grease, mop up some with a paper towel.

  2. Mix cream cheese, sausage mixture, Monterey Jack cheese, Cheddar cheese, and sour cream in a bowl. Transfer to a shallow, heat-proof baking dish.

  3. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  4. Broil on high until browned and bubbly, 5 or 6 minutes.
