Queso flameado, which you might know as queso fundido, is a bubbling dish of melted white cheese, such as Monterey Jack or asadero, that’s mixed with chiles and often chunks of chorizo or strips of fajita meat as well.
Queso Flameado: Cheese, tequila, and chorizo come together in the best possible way in this perfect Big Game snack. A layer of cooked chorizo provides the snack’s foundation, green chiles bring the heat, and a generous blanket of melted cheese does what only melted cheese can do. The final step that takes this dip from good to great is the addition of a couple shots of tequila, poured over the molten queso. Just before serving, you set fire to the tequila (that’s the flameado part).
