Cravings Review – Roasted Jalapeno and Chorizo Queso

By | Food | No Comments

Y’all. This might be one of the most unexpected yet truly AMAZING dips I’ve ever made! Without doubt one of the spiciest quesos we’ve ever made, but well worth it. My husband is all about spicy foods and a good dip. This was just what the doctor ordered and it has everything you need for a great dinner or party. This recipe called for six whole jalapenos. Now I know that the amount of jalapenos can be a deterrent for those who don’t enjoy spicy foods. And I won’t lie, it’s spicy and a little intense. But once you get through a few bites, you start working through the spice and enjoying the flavor. So be willing to try something new and give this queso a shot!

I don’t use chorizo regularly so I wasn’t entirely sure how this would taste going in. But any kind of meat is acceptable to my hubby so we went in full force! The longest cooking time in this recipe is the roasted jalapenos. You want to get them nice and dark so depending on your oven this could take a while. We cook in a tiny oven in our camper that only goes to 450 degrees. So it took double the amount of time to cook these. The rest of the dip went by quickly: an onion, tomato, velveeta cheese and chorizo. Simple ingredients but one heck of a taste! The best part is there is no bad aftertaste, which is a huge deal when working with new recipes!

  • Overall Difficulty: 2/5
  • Price: Less than $15 for all ingredients
  • Taste: 5/5
  • Recommendation: This was my and my husbands favorite recipe thus far! It makes plenty of dip to go around and is very hearty so be prepared to fill up quickly!

The recipe can be found in Chrissy Teigens cookbook Cravings. This receipe review is a part of our Cravings Cookbook review.
