It’s a happy Monday because Cinco de Mayo is just days away! And I think that you deserve to have chips and Queso Fundido for dinner.
Because why not?
So how was the weekend? It monsooned here in Texas. My entire house filled with a burning smell during the storm and that caused me to call maintenance out here at 11 pm on Friday night and, OF COURSE, the smell was gone by the time they got here.
The maintenance guy was like, “Oh yeah, your neighbors car got struck by lightning… so maybe that was it.”
Texas, man. Just when I start to think I could stay here forever, spring storms come in and you-know-what on my party.
So what is Queso Fundido? Well it translates to “melted cheese” so…
But it’s also made with chorizo and I looooove chorizo. I had a 10 minute conversation with the HEB cashier about all the ways we love to use chorizo when I was buying the ingredients for this. Ten minutes. About chorizo.
The recipe calls for a Mexican melting cheese which I know may be hard to find in certain areas of the world but if you live in Texas and can get to an HEB, they have every kind you can imagine. I highly recommend a mixture of quesadilla and asadero but really, just use cheddar if you can’t find the Mexican stuff. It’ll be delicious either way!
Serve this queso with chips and margaritas for the perfect Cinco de Mayo spread!1
