  • 1 pound ground chorizo
  • 1/2 cup white onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup orange bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper chopped
  • 2 fresh jalapenos seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 10 ounce can tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or a mix of cheddar and American


  • In a large skillet brown the chorizo over medium heat, breaking it up as you go. Drain off the grease and set the meat aside.
  • In the same skillet saute the onion, peppers, and garlic over medium heat for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally until the peppers are tender.
  • In the same skillet add the heavy cream, cream cheese, undrained can of tomatoes, and shredded cheddar. Stir the mixture as it melts and if the heat seems a bit too high cut it down to medium-low. Allow the cheese to melt nice and slow so the texture is perfectly smooth.
  • Add the chorizo back to the skillet and stir to coat. Allow the queso about 5 minutes over low heat to warm the chorizo back up.
  • When ready to serve top with all of your favorite fixings such as shredded cheese, tomatoes, jalapenos, and green onions!
