“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.” - by HONEYBEEZ
Original recipe yields 16 servings
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- 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.
- 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 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 ..." See moreblend. 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..." See more 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've enjoyed this at mexican restaurants before, and this is somewhat similar. I skip the corn oil as chorizo is quite greasy on its own. I also pour the chorizo on the bottom and top with the chees..." See moree. (I say "pour" rather than "sprinkle" because chorizo does not have the same cosistency as say regular pork sausage.) This dish rates very high on the grease scale, but if you don't mind it that much, these are great on corn tortillas."
