Cast-Iron Fiery Pimento Cheese Dip

It's Cinco De Mayo, the official kick off to spring and summer and a great reason to celebrate. What is a fiesta without a fiery cheese dip? Chips and dip are a necessity when enjoying margaritas and Mexican liberation! If you do not like a kick with your dip, we suggest using regular pimento cheese in place of fiery in the dip to tone it down. This cast-iron dip is great for entertaining and your guests will be begging for more!

  1. Crumble the chorizo into a cast-iron skillet. Using a fork, break up the sausage and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. If the sausage seems greasy, spoon off the fat.
  2. Stir in the pimento cheese and salsa.
  3. Cook over low heat until the cheese is melted and the dip is heated through.
  4. Serve hot from the skillet with tortilla chips.
  • 8 to 12 ounces fresh chorizo sausage, casing removed
  • 1 container (16 ounces) of fiery pimento cheese
  • 1 container (16 ounces) of pico de gallo or salsa
  • Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves and chopped red bell pepper, optional of course
I love pimento cheese because you can do so many things with it. This dip is one of my favorites-perfect for a fiesta!
