Place oven rack 4 in. from heat. Preheat broiler to HIGH. Heat 8-in. cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add chorizo; cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until browned (165°), stirring occasionally to break into crumbles. Transfer chorizo to bowl using a slotted spoon; reserve drippings in skillet.
Add ½ cup bell peppers and garlic to skillet with drippings; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bell peppers begin to soften, stirring occasionally. Remove skillet from heat; stir in beer. Return skillet to heat; cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until most of the beer has evaporated.
Add mozzarella, 7-layer cheese blend and Cotija cheeses to skillet; stir to combine. Top with chorizo. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes until the cheese is melted and slightly golden. Garnish with additional bell peppers and cilantro, if desired. Serve with chips.
