Queso Fundido with Chorizo

For this year’s Super Bowl, I made a Queso Fundido with Chorizo, also known as Mexican Cheese Dip. This Queso Fundido recipe uses chorizo, but it can easily be omitted from the recipe, or if you are a vegetarian, you can use a soy chorizo. Serve these with my homemade tortilla chips.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this Mexican cheese dip recipe, which makes a much better Superbowl recipe than that nasty Nacho cheese dip you get on the supermarket aisle.

Queso Fundido with Chorizo


  • 1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 10 oz. best quality chorizo (or soy chorizo) — this can be omitted from the recipe
  • 1 onion, minced finely
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and minced (reserve one for garnish)
  • 1/3 cup good-quality Mexican beer or tequila
  • 1 teaspoon garlic-shallot puree, or 1 clove of minced garlic
  • 1 tomato, seeded and diced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, minced (plus more for garnish)


  1. Saute chorizo with onions, jalapeños and garlic in a large pan. Stir in cheese, beer and tomatoes and heat until bubbling. Mix in cilantro before serving.
