This wonderful appetizer or snack is just so good… a quick little thing to make.. great for while watching the game or back a meal…
So just what is Queso Fundido with Chorizo? Queso Fundido means melted cheese… and that’s just what it is… molten cheese… and in this case with chorizo…
I found chorizo in the section of the grocery store with the kielbasa. It was in link form, so I scratch the connect in half and squeezed out the chorizo… the links are about the size of zesty dogs… I used two.
Be careful when handling jalapeno peppers. Wearing gloves is best… although I admit I don’t. Don’t touch your face with your hands and make sure you wash your hands after handling them. The seeds are where the heat is, so don’t add them to the food.
As the cheese cools it volition get chewy… put a container with it to get it out of the dish easier… it’s just delicious on warm tortillas.
Serve it with tortilla chips or warm tortillas… yummmm!
