İFiesta de Cinco de Mayo!
Queso Fundido (Melted Cheese)
Yield: 4-6 Servings
5 ounces Mexican Chorizo, casings removed. (Spanish chorizo works too)
8 ounces Monterey or Oaxaca Cheese, cubed (2 ½-3 cups)
16 ounces melting cheese (Velveeta, Bongaard’s, etc.)
½ can Rotel tomatoes with green chiles, drained
1/2 teaspoon Tijerina’s Carnitas Spice Blend
Flour tortillas or tortilla chips for serving
1. In a medium, oven proof skillet or cast-iron pan, over medium high heat, add the chorizo and Carnitas Spice Blend and cook, stirring frequently to avoid it from sticking to the bottom. 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan melt all of the cheese, and ½ can Rotel with green chiles in a pan over medium heat and cook 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Stir continuously so that the cheese does not burn.
5. Remove from the heat, add chorizo, stir, and transfer to a serving dish.
6. Serve warm with tortillas or chips.
