Queso Fundido with Jalapeño Sausage

Queso%20fundido

Ooey, gooey, spicy, cheesy...no wonder queso fundido is such a popular appetizer!

Serves 6 | Total Time: Less Than 60 Mins

Ingredients

  • 1 small ripe tomato, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 ounces coarsely grated or chopped mild yellow cheddar
  • 8 ounces coarsely grated or chopped Applegate Organics® Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Applegate Naturals® Jalapeño & Cheddar Sausages , chopped
  • ½ yellow onion, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup beer
  • Tortilla chips, for serving

Instructions

  1. Stir together the tomato, scallions, jalapeño and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Toss together the cheeses and flour in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to a bowl.
  4. Add the onions to the saucepan, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the beer and cook, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan, about 1 minute.
  6. Start adding the cheeses, a handful at a time, stirring until melted. Continue adding the cheese in this manner, stirring constantly, until all the mixture is melted and smooth. Stir the sausage into the cheese mixture.
  7. Transfer the queso fundido to a warm serving bowl. Spoon the salsa over the queso, using a slotted spoon to drain the excess liquid. Serve at once with tortilla chips.
