Grandma's Queso Flameado



  • 1 small can of green chiles
  • 1/4 pound Mexican chorizo, removed from casing (grandma suggests doubling this)
  • 3 cups shredded asadero cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
  • ½ cup of pico de gallo
  • Warm corn and/or flour tortillas or chips, for serving


  1. Heat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Cook your chorizo (stirring frequently) over medium heat until crumbly in an ovenproof skillet. A cast iron pan works well.
  3. Drain the fat and add the green chilis to the pan, giving them a good toss to combine with the sausage.
  4. Cover with cheese.
  5. Bake until all bubbly and melted.
  6. Remove skillet from the oven and top with fresh pico de gallo
