“YUMMY. I am from a border town in Texas, this is really simple. I can't think of any other way they serve cheese in Mexican restaurants. This is also good with avocado, salsa, and fajitas.”

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Heat the corn oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble in the chorizo sausage; cook and stir until evenly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan, and set aside. Place slices of cheese in a single layer to cover the bottom of the pan. It is okay if they overlap a little bit. When cheese melts, quickly pour into a nice casserole dish, or oven-proof bowl. Sprinkle the chorizo on top.
  3. Bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is fully melted. Remove from the oven, stick a fork in it and load your tortilla.

I changed the recipe quite a bit, but the result was very yummy. I cooked the chorizo in a skillet with onion and some red bell pepper, then when it was cooked through, I stirred in Mexican 4-cheese blend. Skipped using the oven. Served in flour tortillas with sour cream and quacamole and a side of Mexican Rice II.

I love to eat Chori Queso at mexican restaurants because theirs is always perfect. Chorizo for me is hit or miss in the store. I can never seem to find a mild-flavored chorizo in the stores. I use the mexican quesadilla cheese instead of mozzerella because it tends to melt down better. Lastly, we eat our Chori Queso with steamed flour tortillas. Yum!



I skip the oil if the chorizo I have is higher in fat. With Chorizo Fino you might need a bit of oil. Yes this is greasy but it's cheese & sausage! It's supposed to be. This is just how I make it at it's simplest. When I'm feeling fancy I will add pico de gallo or avacado or something when I serve it.
