Let queso fundido be the star of the party. This beloved dip is a gooey mess of chorizo, shredded cheese, cream cheese, garlic, and jalapenos, ready to be mopped up with crispy tortilla chips.

Instructions

  1. 1In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the chorizo and cook until cooked through and slightly crispy, about 10 minutes. Transfer the chorizo with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the fat in the pan. | In the same pan, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, until softened lightly browned.
  2. 2Add the garlic, jalapeño, salt, pepper, and cumin, and cook for 1 minute, until aromatic.
  3. 3Pour in the milk and cream cheese and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until smooth and slightly thickened.
  4. 4Add the cheddar and Monterey Jack to the pan and stir for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the cheese has melted.
  5. 5Reserve ¼ cup of chorizo for topping, and add the remaining chorizo back to the queso and stir to combine.
  6. 6To serve, top queso with the remaining chorizo, sliced jalapeños, and cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.
