Chorizo Skillet Queso Fundido

Chorizo Skillet Queso Fundido

The queso dip to rival all queso dips—with everything but the kitchen sink! This ooey-gooey queso fundido is filled with spicy chorizo, poblano peppers, and three types of cheeses. Feel free to add any additional Mexican ingredients to suit your taste.

Ingredients: for the queso fundido

Ingredients: For the toppings


  1. Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions, garlic, and peppers for 2 minutes. Crumble in the sausage, and continue to sauté for 5 minutes or until sausage is cooked completely.
  2. In a large bowl, toss flour with cheddar and monterey jack, until coated.
  3. Pour beer into the skillet to deglaze, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pan to get all the tasty brown bits. Whisk in cheese, a handful at a time, until melted and smooth. Reduce heat to low, and allow to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. When ready to serve, top hot (and still simmering) queso with tomatoes, onion, queso fresco cheese, and cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.

Tip: Queso fundido is best served right out of the pan, and immediately (while it is still bubbling a bit). This makes a great appetizer; serve with as many Mexican condiments as you’d like for guests to DIY their dip.
