Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Are you celebrating today by drowning yourself in chips, salsa and guacamole? Maybe a margarita or two? All perfectly good options, I think. If you’re in a festive mood, but are unsure of what to make, check out my Cinco de Mayo roundup from last week, or… make queso fundido!
I can’t believe that it took until I was 33 years old to discover queso fundido. I mean, it’s a big pan of melted cheese with spicy sausage… How could this have not been on my radar sooner?
It so happened that Ree and Gaby made this within a week of each other prior to the Super Bowl this year and I became obsessed with it. Traditionally, this is actually a flambéed dish (fancy!), believe it or not. I found a ton of different variations on this dish, and I finally threw together my own spin, complete with spicy chorizo sausage, jalapeños, and three different types of cheese. Pile it all into a cast iron skillet, bake it, then dig into the ooey, gooey, spicy cheesiness.
Grab a big bag of chips… you’re going to need them! Cheers!
