  • 3.5 ozs chorizo sausage, without the skin and minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 7 ozs Oaxaca or Chihuahua cheese, or any other variety that’s suitable for melting
  • 6 flour tortillas


  • 1
    Pre-heat your oven to 450°F.
  • 2
    In a frying pan over medium heat, add the tablespoon of olive oil. When hot, place the minced chorizo into the pan. Stir constantly until cooked, usually 10-15 minutes depending on the type of chorizo. When ready, remove from heat and set to the side.

    Cut the cheese into small pieces and put in an oven-safe dish. Make a well or space in the middle of the cheese and fill with the chorizo. Place the dish in the oven and bake until the cheese has melted. This will take five to eight minutes, depending on your type of oven.
