Chorizo Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido with Chorizo – A melted cheese dip that’s a perfect party appetizer or as a hot dip recipe for you next game day gathering.

It’s March Madness, which means bring on all the game day eats. Here’s a crowd-pleasing dip that you can prep in less than 15 minutes. For this version, I’m throwing in a little bit of green chiles. They’re a fast and easy addition that will cut through the richness of the cheese and chorizo, but if you have a few more minutes to spare, try roasting two poblanos, then peel and chop them up for a fresh-roasted flavor.

Whatever you do, make two if you are serving a large crowd—its’s always the first to go.

Yield: Serves 8
