Last year our good friend, Vijay from Nosh On It was able to come into Utah for a visit and a few of us bloggers met up with him for lunch. He’s awesome and we were all thrilled to meet up. We decided on Glorias in downtown Salt Lake City and the food was delicious. My absolute favorite part, as I tend to loooove dips like this pizza dip was the chorizo dip. I don’t know exactly how thy make it but I do know that my version of chorizo dip or queso fundido is equally delicious.

 

In fact, watch our fun video!

It’s all thanks to one very special ingredient, Queso Quesadilla but Cacique. Most of our grocery stores carry it by the international foods (by the meat usually) or in the normal cheese section. It melts down perfectly and has a nice creamy, buttery flavor. You could also use oaxaca but that one is harder for me to get my little hands on.

I am always a little shocked when someone hasn’t tried chorizo. It’s the best stuff ever because it’s ready in like 5 minutes and it has a ton of flavor, like loads without doing a darn thing. It can be spicy so I tend to buy the more mild one, but I am also a bonafide wimp. The real deal. I cannot handle spicy well at all. Just empty 1/2 package into a skillet with one garlic clove, minced and cook for about 5 minutes.

Look how easy! And because of the kinds of cheese that we use they literally melt down perfectly just like a dip. It’s awesome! Just use the fine grater for cheese and grate mozzarella and queso quesadilla. Pile it up in a ceramic dish or cast iron skillet and place it in the oven.

Once it’s all melty scoop the chorizo onto the top and serve immediately. And by serve I mean hide in the corner and stuff as much as you can into your face before your family discovers you and wants some.

Which is what we plan on doing with this Hissy Fit dip as well. Years ago we were at a party and someone made a very similar dip but we never got the recipe and I’ve been trying to recreate it ever since. This is seriously even better than the first!! It’s full of sour cream, chives, sausage, and cheese. YUM!  You probably should make both the chorizo dip and this one asap. Just sayin’.

  1. I made this exactly as directed (I used Oaxaca cheese) and the texture was all wrong. It was impossible to dip into – more like one giant glob of cheese, and any chip in it would break off . You had to kind of cut a piece off and put it on the chip, and then the taste was chewy. Not like real queso at all 🙁 

  2. I just wanted to say thanks for an awesome recipe!!  I tend to go overboard so I use more chorizo and garlic, I also add one can of diced green chili’s. I serve on  flour tortillas and top with homemade pico.   So good!  I’ve made this 4 times now after coming across your fab recipe a couple months ago!

  3. Looks delicious!! Would the work with cacique asadero cheese and Monterrey jack? That’s all I have on hand.

  4. Dips are irresistible, this one included. I like the mix of cheeses, not the usual suspects. Sounds delicious!

  6. Queso fundido is not a new idea, Mexicans have been doing this since we started making cheese.

  7. Thanks for a great recipe! We came on some bumps the first time, but it still tasted good! I’m linking this page off of my blog page, and just want to give you credit where credit is due! 🙂

  8. I tried this, and I used to exactly quesadilla cheese you used and mot just like it says, and it wouldn’t belt down… it was just lumpy and would start to get rubbery the second it cooled a little. I don’t understand!! 🙁

  9. This looks amazing! We usually only have access to Cacique’s Queso Fresco. Do you recommend using that or Mont Jack?

  10. I remember that day so well – it was so nice to meet you in person!

  11. Oh wow, does this dip sound amazing!! I’m drooling over here 🙂

  12. Can’t wait to try this! What kind of chorizo does it call for? Mexican or Portuguese?

  13. Made this and it was fantastic! Could you suggest what I could add to keep it more creamy and less stringy as it cools down? Possibly half and half or cream cheese? Thank you!

    • You could certainly make it into an actual dip with cream cheese and bake it in the oven, but fundidio is meant to be eaten hot and stringy. Also, if you put it in a deeper dish that will keep more heat instead of the flat dish which cools off quicker. 🙂

  14. For Eleanola in the UK,
    Just use the whole or sliced chorico and chop it in a food processor.
    You will be able to make it whatever size you like.
    Hope this is helpful to you.

  15. Want to sign up for your newsletter but was notified you were blocked. not real tech savy. Try to get through please. Thanks so much.

  16. i have only seen chorizo as a whole or sliced sausage. are you talking about a ground meat product?

    Have a Super week,
    Linda

  25. I make chorizo empanadas that are make-ya-cry good, so I’m all over this dip.

  26. Lovveeee fundido!! Especially fundido with chorizo. I’ve made it a few times and have NEVER thought to just put the shredded cheese directly into the skilled. So smart!
