How to Make Warm Mexican Layer Dip


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, pablano pepper, jalapeno pepper and garlic, and cook until they begin to soften, approximately 5 minutes. Add chorizo and continue cooking until chorizo is cooked through, approximately 5 minutes. Drain well, set aside.
  3. In a 9-inch pie plate, evenly spread out the cream cheese. Top with the refried beans, spreading out to within 1/4-inch of the edge of the cream cheese layer. Top evenly with the picante sauce, reserved chorizo mixture, and the Mexican cheese blend.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 - 20 minutes until heated through and bubbly around the edges. Top with scallions. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
