Expert Tips

You can use beef chorizo or even tofu to make the dish vegetarian.

Queso fundido with chorizo is always welcomed at my family parties. We enjoy it with our sandwiches, tacos, quesadillas or simple on a piece of bread. It's a wonderful snack for getting together with friends to watch a soccer match or your favorite TV show. It's also a Mexican appetizer that kids can enjoy. My family loves this dish. I hope you like it too!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  • 2 Open the tube of crescents and unroll the first triangle. Place the widest part of the triangle at the bottom of one of the cupcake molds and then take the other end and bring the two together. It will look like a small basket. Repeat until you've completed them all.
  • 3 Bake for 8 minutes.
  • 4 In the meantime, heat a pan and fry the chorizo until it brown. Shred the Oaxaca cheese.
  • 5 After the 8 minutes, remove the mold from the oven. Use a spoon to help you flatten out the middle of each basket to make room for the cheese. Place the cheese in the middle of each pastry and sprinkle with chorizo.
  • 6 Lower the temperature to 350° F and bake for 4 more minutes.
  • 7 Remove from the oven, let sit and serve. You can serve with salsa or guacamole.
