This flavorful choriqueso recipe comes together in less than 15 minutes with only a few ingredients. Perfect for parties and get togethers!


  • 1 batch of vegetarian chorizo, or store-bought chorizo
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups tightly packed shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican Blend Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • Lightly salted corn tortilla chips, for serving


Cook the chorizo. In a large cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat, brown the chorizo until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain the chorizo by spooning it onto a plate lined with a thick stack of paper towels.

Add other ingredients. Return the skillet to the stove. With the heat on low, pour the heavy cream into the skillet and then immediately stir in the Monterey Jack cheese. Continue to stir until the cheese completely melts, 2 to 5 minutes.

Serve. Turn off the heat and gently stir in the cooked and drained chorizo. Top with the cilantro and bring the skillet directly to the table. Serve warm with tortilla chips.
