Queso Flameado

  • Currently 4/5
From http://homesicktexan.blogspot.com/2010/01/queso-flameado-recipe.html This is one of my favorite dishes at local Mexican restaurants. What's not to love? Ooey-gooey cheese in a tortilla. Simply delish! I highly recommend other recipes that Lisa (aka Homesick Texan) has recreated with much love and patience. I have made several of her recipes and each one was better than the last!
3 cups asadero cheese, shredded
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 each poblano chile
1/2 cup Mexican chorizo
1. Heat the poblano chile under the broiler for five minutes on each side or until its blackened. Place the chile in a paper sack, close it and let the chile steam for 15 minutes. After this time, rub off the skin, remove the stem and seeds and cut into strips.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
3. Break up the chorizo and cook it in a skillet until it's done, about five minutes. Lightly grease a medium-sized cast-iron skillet or a casserole dish and add the cheese. Top with the crumbled, cooked chorizo and poblano strips and cook for 15 minutes or until bubbling.
4. Spoon out the melted queso flameado onto tortillas. Serve immediately.
