Mary’s Queso Fundido
Cheese, tomatoes, meat. Some more cheese. And an Uncle Leo's beer to bring the whole party together. This fun and easy dip will bring smiles to everyone at your next poker night. Right guys?
Cast iron pan works great for this, but any 10 inch pan will work. This dip is traditionally made with Chorizo sausages, but our butcher had some delicious Italian sausages that we chose to go with instead. We regret nothing! So use your favourite.
10 oz cherry tomatoes
olive oil 2 cups grated cheese, mix of Monterrey Jack and Cheddar 3 hot Italian sausages, removed from casings 2 tbsp Mary Had a Lot of Lamb spice blend 1/2 cup beer
Corn chips for serving
Heat up your pan on medium heat and add a splash of olive oil. Add the whole cherry tomatoes, tossing occasionally. Cooking until they get all wrinkly and slightly seared, about 8 minutes. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Add your crumbled sausage meat to the pan and cook until browned. Add your tomatoes back into the pot along with Mary Had a Lot of Lamb spice blend. Stir to combine and allow to cook together for a minute.
Stir in your beer and top evenly with the cheese. Lower heat and cover to allow cheese to melt. Approx 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minute.
