Last year our good friend, Vijay from Nosh On It was able to come into Utah for a visit and a few of us bloggers met up with him for lunch. He’s awesome and we were all thrilled to meet up. We decided on Glorias in downtown Salt Lake City and the food was delicious. My absolute favorite part, as I tend to loooove dips like this pizza dip was the chorizo dip. I don’t know exactly how thy make it but I do know that my version of chorizo dip or queso fundido is equally delicious.

In fact, watch our fun video!

It’s all thanks to one very special ingredient, Queso Quesadilla but Cacique. Most of our grocery stores carry it by the international foods (by the meat usually) or in the normal cheese section. It melts down perfectly and has a nice creamy, buttery flavor. You could also use oaxaca but that one is harder for me to get my little hands on.

I am always a little shocked when someone hasn’t tried chorizo. It’s the best stuff ever because it’s ready in like 5 minutes and it has a ton of flavor, like loads without doing a darn thing. It can be spicy so I tend to buy the more mild one, but I am also a bonafide wimp. The real deal. I cannot handle spicy well at all. Just empty 1/2 package into a skillet with one garlic clove, minced and cook for about 5 minutes.

Look how easy! And because of the kinds of cheese that we use they literally melt down perfectly just like a dip. It’s awesome! Just use the fine grater for cheese and grate mozzarella and queso quesadilla. Pile it up in a ceramic dish or cast iron skillet and place it in the oven.

Once it’s all melty scoop the chorizo onto the top and serve immediately. And by serve I mean hide in the corner and stuff as much as you can into your face before your family discovers you and wants some.

Which is what we plan on doing with this Hissy Fit dip as well. Years ago we were at a party and someone made a very similar dip but we never got the recipe and I’ve been trying to recreate it ever since. This is seriously even better than the first!! It’s full of sour cream, chives, sausage, and cheese. YUM!  You probably should make both the chorizo dip and this one asap. Just sayin’.
