    Next, remove the skin from the chorizo before placing in the skillet. Continue cooking the mixture while using a fork to ‘break-up’ the pieces of chorizo. Then mix-in the chopped jalapeño.

    After two minutes have passed, stir in the cheese. Cook for an additional two minutes or until the cheese has melted. Transfer your finished dip to a serving dish and garnish with the jalapeño slices. Serve hot alongside your favorite tortilla chips.

  • If you prefer a dip that’s not spicy, you can prepare this recipe without the jalapeños. To garnish, use diced tomatoes and cilantro instead.

  • If you need an excuse to see your amigos, prepare this simple jalapeño and chorizo cheese dip and invite them over! I assure you they’ll love it. Queso fundido or choriqueso, is a melted cheese dip that originates from Mexico. Ideal for serving as an appetizer or special cocktail dish, I like to serve mine with tortilla chips. This jalapeño and chorizo cheese dip is the perfect combination of colors, textures and sabores for your table.
