Queso Fundido

This is OMG good! If you  do Taco Tuesday like we do (as many times a month as there are Tuesdays) then I suggest that you start with Queso Fundido next time! I love creamy, velvety smooth Queso (the Rotel & Velveeta type) as much as the next guy and my White Green Chiles & Spin Queso is also the bomb-dot-com, BUT just try this — > you will add it to your rotation for sure.

This is a dip that is authentically Mexican (although each region has there own style) so it pairs especially well with authentic carne asada or street tacos.  You can serve this with tortilla chips OR warm tortillas (how it is served in Mexico)…. oh, and don’t forget the Margaritas!

Queso Fundido
I recommend you use a small cast iron skillet (6 inch) or double this recipe & use a larger cast iron skillet (9-10 inch) This makes well ahead to bake later if you want.
