Chorizo & Cheese Dip

Raven Higheagle


We now have a farm to table Mexican restaurant not to far from where we live. Real Mexican chilies and proper portions... plus they make a great Margarita.
Well, the last time I went my daughter and I had this simple cheese and Chorizo dip and she begged me to try making it at home.
Now the recipe isn't exactly what the restaurant serves, we tried to be more authentic and make the dip with Panela Fresca cheese. I don't think it melted as well as the mozzarella that the restaurant used. My daughter liked the taste of the Panela Fresca more... I say melt up whatever cheese you have on hand.
