Queso Fundido con Chorizo

 I used ground beef because that is what I had on hand however I am sure the chorizo would have given this dish some much needed flavor.  My oldest son and husband loved this, I think next time with some added spice it could be much better!
  • 1/2 pound chorizo sausage, casings removed
  • 1/4 cup onion, minced
  • 10 ounces pepperjack cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons diced tomatoes & green chiles, drained

Preheat oven to broil.
Brown chorizo over medium-high heat, using a wooden spoon to break up into small pieces.  
Add onions & cook until translucent.  
Drain off excess fat, & spread into the bottom of a medium sized casserole dish.
Place cheese & tomatoes in a microwave safe bowl.  
Microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until the cheese is melted and the tomatoes have been combined.  
Spread the cheese in the casserole dish over top of the chorizo.
Broil on the top rack of your oven until cheese starts to turn golden brown, around 5 minutes.  
Serve hot with tortilla chips.
