Hatch Green Chile Queso Fundido

Zia Hatch Green Chile Queso Fundido 


Is there a better recipe to please yourself and others during football season? We really don't think so. 

Hatch Green Chile and cheese is already a classic winning combination. Add in chorizo and the texture / flavor of mexican cheese blends and you might not want to go back to regular queso. 



(Makes one 8 inch skillets worth. For a larger group, double the recipe)

- 1/2 jar Zia Hatch Green Chile, strained

- About 6-7 oz Mexican Chorizo

- 1 scallion, both greens and whites, chopped

- 8 oz shredded Monterey Jack Cheese or other easy melting Mexican cheese (such as Oaxaca, Asadero, Quesadilla or Chihuahua)

- Large pinch (about 1 tbsp) Cilantro, chopped 

- 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt

- Chips and Limes (for serving)

- Dash of olive oil, for cooking



1. Allow olive oil to heat up in a skillet over medium heat. Add chorizo and, while stirring and mashing, cook 5 or so minutes until browned. Remove from heat. 

2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cooked chorizo, Zia Hatch Green Chile, cheese blend, cilantro, garlic salt, and chopped scallion. Mix well and transfer to an 8 inch skillet or other shallow baking dish. 

3. Heat up your oven broiler to high (or the setting on your oven that broils anywhere from 500-550 degrees Fahrenheit). Broil the queso fundido until the cheese is melted, browned and bubbling. This can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes. 

4. Serve with chips / optional limes and enjoy!
