This Keto Cheesy Chorizo Dip is a hearty dish full of bold flavor, spice and everything nice! The best part? Less than 1 carb per serving!
Oh. My. Wow.
I think I just created my new favorite dip.
I’m a big dipper (check out my Low Carb Cinnamon Cheesecake Dip for a dessert dip!), and I love to skip the chips with Pork Rinds (don’t we all?) but a lot of pre-made dips are way too high in carbs for the average Keto eater.
The idea for this recipe came just a couple of weeks ago when I was still pregnant with Maya (spoiler alert: if you haven’t heard the news yet…she’s here!!). We went out to get dinner at our favorite Mexican place to try to kind of help things along…(Mexican food getting labor started may just be an old wive’s tale, but it sure is a delicious one!) and out of the blue my husband ordered a side of Chorizo dip.
It looked good. It tasted AMAZING. But I knew that we could make it even better ourselves.
Keto Cheesy Chorizo Dip
If you haven’t tried Chorizo, you’re definitely missing out. It’s the star of this recipe, and one of my new favorite things!
Chorizo is a highly seasoned, spicy sausage that from Spain or Mexico. It’s not quite like anything I’d ever tried…but I fell in love INSTANTLY.
You can get it at any Walmart, and it only comes to 1 carb per serving.
This recipe is very easy to make and only requires Monterry Jack Cheese, Chorizo, Jalapenos, Scallions, and Cilantro.
One thing to definitely keep in mind when you’re putting this recipe together is that pan-cooked Chorizo can make a LOT of grease…like…too much, even for someone enjoying a Low Carb, High Fat Diet. So be sure to strain it before you bake it!
This dip is so delish that I know it’s hard to believe we would have any leftover, but we do! What do you suggest for storing & reheating?

Hi, I need some help here! My husband and I love the flavor of this dip but ours looks NOTHING like your photo. Did you drain ALL of the grease from your chorizo? We drained our chorizo completely and followed the recipe exactly. Our dip is very very cheesy. So much so that you really can’t properly dip anything into it. We’re having to use forks to separate the cheese so we can eat it. What did we do wrong? I’d love it to look more like your photo.
