Queso Fundido or “Molten Cheese”… ooey gooey delicious. This dip is a cheese lovers dream, sort of a Mexican fondue. I love the contrast of the smooth, gooey cheese with the spicy (slightly greasy) chorizo. Every time I pull a dish of Queso Fundido out of the oven, friends and family gather around. Its fun! To eat, dip in crunchy tortilla chips or pile the cheese high on a tortilla, roll up and enjoy.
6 oz. of ground chorizo
2 cups of Mexican melting or quesadilla cheese (mozzarella is also a great substitute)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown chorizo in a skillet until cooked through. Drain off excess fat from chorizo. Load a well greased baking dish with grated cheese and sprinkle over the cooked chorizo. Bake for 15 minutes until bubbly and slightly browned. Simply delicioso!
Get creative with your Fundido toppings, try; ground beef, avocados, fresh pico de gallo, the sky’s the limit!
