Queso Flameado


Who doesn’t love gooey, melted cheese? And even more so when it’s topped with spicy chorizo?

¾ cup fresh chorizo, removed from casings

1 small onion, minced

2 cups grated mozzarella, brick or Monterey Jack cheese

1 jalapeno chili chopped.



Step 1

Cook the chorizo in a skillet with a bit of water, breaking it up into small bits with a wooden spoon. Once the water evaporates, the chorizo will have rendered down and it will brown in its own fat.

Step 2

Add chopped onion and cook until onion is very soft. Add the chopped chili to the mixture.

Step 3

Place the cheese in a heatproof bowl and sprinkle the chorizo onion mixture on top. Bake until melted and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
