Spicy Chorizo Dip
So here is an embarrassing admission. We have lived in Southern California since September of 2008 and we have only tried chorizo for the first time like a month ago. That’s four years without tasting one of our region’s most delicious local delicacies. It is pretty ridiculous. So I finally got around to picking some up a few weeks ago, but for some reason, I pictured it being like a sausage in a casing, and that I would slice it then brown it with some garlic and red bell pepper and maybe serve with a fried egg and toast for breakfast. Well, it wasn’t actually sliceable. The mixture turned out to have a sort of runny consistency. I basically just had to squeeze the mixture out of the packaging like it was toothpaste. I was surprised by that, but I figured I would put that runny quality to good use and make it into…wait for it…a dip! How surprised are you? The crazy thing is that this dip is intensely delicious, like a spicy, meaty bruschetta. Perfect with some sliced, toasted baguette or tortilla chips.
