Queso Fundido con Chorizo

I am sure this recipe is wonderful if made is written. We wanted to make it and put it in a crockpot, so we made this recipe our own. I added the additional ingredients and also how we made this. The picture doesn't look too great, but let me tell you that it tasted wonderful!

Queso Fundido con Chorizo

1/2 pound chorizo sausage, casings removed
1/4 cup onion, minced
10 ounces pepperjack cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons diced tomatoes and green chiles, drained
*****Beth's additional ingredients
2 T butter
2 T flour
1-2 c milk 

Preheat oven to broil.

Brown chorizo over medium-high heat, using a wooden spoon to break up into small pieces. Add onions & cook until translucent. Drain off excess fat, & spread into the bottom of a medium sized casserole dish.

Place cheese & tomatoes in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until the cheese is melted and the tomatoes have been combined. Spread the cheese in the casserole dish over top of the chorizo.

Broil on the top rack of your oven until cheese starts to turn golden brown, around 5 minutes.

Serve hot with tortilla chips.

****Beth's directions....  We  browned the chorizo and added the cheese and tomatoes .  In another pan, we made a roux with 2 T butter, 2 T flour and 1-2 c milk.  Cook until thickened and slowly add the chorizo/cheese/tomato mixture.  Place in a mini crockpot to keep warm.  Serve with chips.
