Chorizo queso with spicy chorizo sausage stirred into a creamy cheese dip makes for one of the best queso recipes out there.


1/4 pound spicy chorizo sausage
1/4 cup diced onion
1 3.5 ounce can green chilis
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup light lager beer
8 ounces grated cheddar and/or monterey jack cheese
Kosher salt
Fresh cilantro, garnish
Tortilla chips, for serving


1) Place a medium cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add chorizo sausage and cook until browned. Break up the sausage as it cooks. Add onion and a pinch of salt and continue to cook until onions are soft. Scoop out a few tablespoons of the chorizo mixture for a topping.

2) Add green chilis to the pan and stir to heat through.

3) Stir in flour to the mixture and cook for a minute or two to cook out the flour taste.

4) Stir in beer and it should start to thicken. Once beer is incorporated, add grated cheese and stir to melt the cheese. If queso is too thick, add another splash of beer.

5) Garnish dip with reserved chorizo and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately with tortilla chips!
