Serve this decadent dip with sturdy tortilla chips or soft corn tortillas for scooping up the crispy sausage and melted cheese. To make it vegetarian, substitute 1 cup coarsely chopped sautéed mushrooms for the chorizo. If you like it spicy, stir in ½ cup fire-roasted poblano chile strips with the tomato just before serving.

Yield: 6 servings | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 17 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz fresh Mexican chorizo, casing removed
  • 1⁄2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 Roma tomato, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lb Monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • Small corn or flour tortillas or tortilla chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a frying pan, brown the chorizo over medium heat, stirring and breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 6 minutes. Transfer the chorizo to a plate. Pour off all but about 1 Tbsp fat from the pan and add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 6–7 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cooked chorizo, tomato, and 1 Tbsp of the cilantro.
  2. Spread half of the cheese across the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Top with the chorizo mixture and finish with the remaining cheese. Bake until the cheese melts, 4–5 minutes. Top with the remaining 1 Tbsp cilantro and serve with tortillas or chips for dipping.

 

HACK: REFRESH STALE TORTILLA CHIPS

To restore the crispness to stale tortilla chips, spread them on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 10–20 seconds just until warm. The chips will become crisp when cool.
