Chorizo Dip

I find when guests come to visit that a good dip can make the evening. I’m not sure what it is exactly about dip that is so enticing, but I do know that a good dip recipe, or two, can be a life saver.  Perhaps it is the communal aspect of dips, the fact that they force interaction, that make them not only a great party nibble but an activity everyone can enjoy!  I decided that I needed more warm dips in my life.  It goes with...
