A quick and super tasty version of an old classic but with chorizo. Way better than processed cheese and canned chili, but just as easy! Top with cilantro, onions, and fresh tomatoes and serve with tortilla chips!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chorizo in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook until transparent, 4 to 5 minutes more.

  • Melt butter in saucepan over medium-high heat until sizzling. Stir in flour and whisk until a paste forms, about 5 minutes. Whisk in milk and continue to cook, whisking, until sauce begins to thicken, about 5 more minutes. Stir in the chorizo mixture, shredded cheese, and green chiles. Continue stirring until smooth and thick.

  • Transfer mixture into a shallow baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Use 8 to 12 ounces of any high-quality fresh chorizo you prefer.

You can skip the baking step and serve the queso directly from the stove, or broil instead of baking.
