{Pinned there, Done that} Chorizo Queso Dip

A little while ago, for Taco Night, I decided to spice things up a bit and add in this Chorizo Queso Dip from Oh, Sweet Basil.

chorizo dip-queso fundido
prep time: 2 minutes
cook time: 5 minutes
yield: 1 small skillet of dip
serving size: a couple of chips dipped


1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup shredded queso quesadilla cheese or oaxaca (or if you can't find either, monterey jack cheese)
1 clove garlic, minced
8 ounces chorizo
tortilla chips for dipping


  • heat the oven to broil.
  • in a medium skillet over medium heat, add the chorizo and garlic and cook through, about 5 minutes. drain and set aside.
  • in a cast iron skillet (small) or ceramic dish, add the cheese and broil until melted. top with drained chorizo and serve immediately with chips.
  • notes

So while the flavor of mine was AWESOME, I think I may have broiled it too long or something... it wasn't super creamy. Also, it hardened up quite quickly so the hubby and I didn't have a chance to eat it without a fork and knife. Still flavorful. I will definitely be trying this again if I find the oazaca cheese.
