Chorizo Fundido

This is a salty cheese dip served hot and spread typically on warm flour tortillas however, I have served it on some crusty toast rubbed with garlic. It is very simple with just a few ingredients (perfect for people like my friend Kim who won’t look at a recipe if there is too many ingredients!)

You will need:

for 2-4 people

  • 2 fresh chorizo sausages -casings removed (not the cured/dried chorizo!)
  • 3/4 -1 cup queso Oaxaca cheese or mozzarella or cheddar
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • tortillas or bread to put the dip/spread on
Step 1: start with a fresh sausage. Do not use the dried variety. Run a knife down the length and peel off the casing. 
Step 2: add the white wine to the sausage and crumble with your fingers.
Step 3: fry the sausage until all the water has evaporated and the meat is starting to brown.
Step 4: add the cooked meat to a food processor and pulse a few times to make it fine pieces.
Step 5: ideally you want to use a Mexican melting cheese or a finely grated mozzarella but, I used cheddar cheese curds that I pulsed in the food processor to make fine. It tasted great.
Step 6: in a flat container add a layer of sausage and some cheese, then add another layer doing the same so that the meat and cheese are evenly distributed. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15- 20 minutes until browned, hot and bubbling. 
Serve immediately while everything is hot and gooey!
