Choriqueso (Melted Cheese with Spicy Chorizo)



3 oz uncooked Mexican style chorizo (85g)

8 oz white melting cheese, such as Monterrey jack or mozzarella (250g)

2 fresh chile serrano, seeds and stems removed, minced


Preheat your oven to 300°F (148°C). If necessary, remove the Mexican style chorizo from its casing.

Using a small 6.5” (16.5cm) cast iron pan, heat the uncooked chorizo over medium heat until it is browned. Slice the cheese into ½” (1cm) cubes. Place the cheese in the cast iron pan and place the pan in the oven. Allow the cheese to melt for 5-7 minutes.

Serve the choriqueso hot from the oven garnished with the minced chile serrano.
