YUMMY. I am from a border town in Texas, this is really simple. I can't think of any other way they serve cheese in Mexican restaurants. This is also good with avocado, salsa, and fajitas.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons corn oil

  • 8 ounces chorizo sausage

  • 8 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese

  • 1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Heat the corn oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble in the chorizo sausage; cook and stir until evenly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan, and set aside. Place slices of cheese in a single layer to cover the bottom of the pan. It is okay if they overlap a little bit. When cheese melts, quickly pour into a nice casserole dish, or oven-proof bowl. Sprinkle the chorizo on top.

  3. Bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is fully melted. Remove from the oven, stick a fork in it and load your tortilla.
