When it comes to Mexican food, I like mine smoky, which is why my mouth waters just thinking about this fire roasted corn and chorizo dip.
Honestly, in my house, this could just be dinner!
But, of course, this makes a kick-a$$ side dish for any backyard BBQ, game day gathering or Mexican dinner feast.
We have a weekly get together in my neighborhood with all of the kids and parents.
We all bring dishes to share on a Friday night, enjoy some beers and the warm summer weather.
(Hey, we’re in Chicago! The moment it gets warm, we find any excuse to get outside.)
I can’t wait to make this for one of our Friday night neighborhood get togethers!
