Chorizo Queso Fundido

Ok, so are stuck at home. Being quarantined because of the Coronavirus is one of the most difficult things I have ever had to experience.

One of the ways that I have passed the time is by cooking. I’m sure that doesn’t come as a surprise, I am a food blogger after all. But one thing that I have had to learn to do is adjust. Adjust making changes to recipes I have always made a certain way. This one of them. I wanted to share it with you because it is super simple, delicious and done in 12 minutes.

This was my husband and I’s lunch today. My original recipe called for fresh Pico de Gallo, goat cheese and more items I didn’t have on hand. But what I did have was sufficient to make this taste delicious!
