Queso Fundido

If you are looking for a really fast and tasty appetizer this dish certainly is both. My friend Amy made this last night for a dinner we had with friends. It was inspired by a dish she had a Mexican restaurant years ago.  It is made with only three ingredients and can be put together in just minutes.  Amy used a cast iron pan, but you could use any dish that is broiler safe. I must admit- having her bring this to the table in the cast iron pan added to the whole presentation. She served it with a combination of tortilla chips and tortillas, so you could either dip your chips or spoon some into a tortilla and roll up to eat.


Amy’s Queso Fundido

1/2 lb. chorizo sausage

1 lb. Muenster cheese- or whatever cheese you like

green chilis

Slice or crumble up the sausage. Cook sausage in skillet until done.  Drain on paper towels. Set aside. Place cheese in a cast iron skillet and place under the broiler for about 3 minutes- or until melted and bubbly. Turn oven down to 350. Sprinkle sausage on top of the cheese and place in oven for a few minutes to warm the sausage. Remove from oven and place several strips of green chilis on top. Serve warm with tortilla chips or tortillas. Serves 6-8.
