Queso Fondido is a great dish to make when you’re invited to a party and want to surprise the party-goers with your incredible culinary knowledge. It’s little more than a fancy queso dip–but it tastes so much better than some brick of fake-cheese or pre-jarred stuff.



Prep Time: 10min    Cook Time: 10 min


  • 1 Tube of Chorizo Sausage (12oz)
  • 3/4 Small Yellow Onion (diced small)
  • 1.5 lb of Mexican Shredded Cheese
  • Chili Powder (a few sprinkles)
  • 2-3 Roma Tomatoes (diced*)
  • 1/4 cup of Cilantro (roughly chopped)
  • Tortilla Chips for serving


  1. In a small Cast Iron Skillet, over medium heat, cook the chorizo sausage until nearly done, then add the onions and keep cooking.
  2. While that cooks, chop up all your produce (onion, cilantro, & tomatoes). Note: Only cut up the firm part of the tomatoes, throw away the mushy stuff in the middle.
  3. After the sausage and onions are cooked, begin to layer the ingredients in either your small Cast Iron Skillet or a baking dish. Cheese, Sausage-Onion, Cheese, Chili Powder, Cheese, Sausage-Onion.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees until the cheese gets nice and melty.
  5. Top with tomato and cilantro and serve with tortilla chips.

Notes: Keep a fork or spoon nearby because as it cools it may break your chips, and you can use the utensil to help scoop the cheese onto your chips.
