Queso fundido is a tasty comfort food that originated in northern Mexico as a campfire dish of chorizo, tomatoes, onions, and poblano peppers in a pool of gooey, stringy, melted cheese. The dish is often prepared tableside in restaurants, where it is flambéed and presented bubbling hot in small casserole dishes as an appetizer. In this version, chorizo is sautéed until crisp and golden, then combined with queso Oaxaca for a simple, yet no less delicious, snack. Spoon the queso onto soft tortillas and serve individually, or set the pot between a group of people and dig in.
