Queso Fundido con Chorizo

Not only do I have a love for Southern cooking, but I also have love for the Mexican cuisine.  I’m a Southern gal, not a bit of Latino in me – but I just love the flavors so much.  And, I love experimenting with the different recipes that I find.

This one was first served to me in a Mexican restaurant, and no matter how many times I asked – or how nicely I did it, they just wouldn’t give me the recipe.

The Queso Fundido con Chorizo wasn’t exactly the cheapest dish on the menu, so it was either pay a fortune for the dish every time I craved it or go home and try to figure it out myself.

I may love food – but I’m cheap.  No way was I going to do the first option.  So – to the test kitchen my kitchen I went to try my best to recreate it.

I think I did pretty darn good because my version tastes even better than the restaurant’s version.  And, it’s not expensive at all.  This is the point in the post where I stick my tongue out at the restaurant chef.  You know how it goes – nanna nanna boo boo and all that good stuff.

Even if you have never tried chorizo sausage, give this recipe a whirl.  The flavors will dance on your tongue, and you will be addicted.  Just like me.  But, I’m giving you the recipe – so therefor that makes me cooler than the expensive Mexican restaurant.
