Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 30 mins

Ingredients needed to make Queso Fundido:

  • 8 oz fresh Mexican chorizo, casings peeled off
  • 2 medium scallions, thinly sliced
  • ½ medium yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 fresh poblano chile, stemmed, deseeded and finely diced
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 12 oz Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 4 large eggs
  • Tortilla chips, for serving
  • Mexican-style hot sauce, for serving
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt to taste

Cooking instructions for Queso Fundido:

  • Warm up your outdoor grill to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet on its rack for about 5 minutes until the skillet sizzles when a drop of water is splashed on it.
  • Throw in the chorizo meat, place a lid on top of the grill and grill for about 5-8 minutes, while crumbling the meat with a wooden spoon and stirring it at times, until the meat browns.
  • Toss the onion as well as chile into it and stir them all together to mix well; place the lid back on and sauté further for another 8 minutes, until they caramelize slightly.
  • Crack the eggs in a medium mixing bowl and whisk them thoroughly, along with a dash of salt, until the yolks break and blend into a pale yellow mixture.
  • Pour this whisked egg all over the sautéed veggies and allow to cook for half a minute without agitating it a bit.
  • Now, stir them all together and spread it across the skillet evenly into a single layer.
  • Top it up with a layer of both kinds of cheese and place the lid on top of the grill.
  • Cook for about 5-6 minutes or until the cheese melts and gives out bubbles.
  • Scatter the sliced scallions on top and drizzle a dash of hot sauce over them.
  • Serve right away with tortilla chips.
  • Dip, munch and enjoy!
