Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido

Dana and I love Chuy’s Tex-Mex Restaurant!  If you have one near you I recommend that you try it ASAP.  Last year during their Hatch Chili Festival they had a limited time special menu that included Queso Fundido. What is Queso Fundido you ask?  Well it is freaking glorious!  Basically it is a Chorizo and cheese dip that you serve on warm flour tortillas.  It is quite possibly the best cheese dish that I have ever had!  The ooey gooey cheese and chorizo on a warm tortilla is straight up gold.  My mouth is watering as I write this up!  You have to try it.

Chorizo Stuffed Zucchini Boats

My friend Jeff went to visit his family in Tennesse and when he came back he brought with him some of the biggest zucchini that I have ever seen.  They were massive.  It almost seemed as if they were some result of a nuclear accident, as they were huge.  After I got over the shock of seeing the giant zucchini, we got down to business.  Jeff said that zucchini that are huge usually don’t have the best flavor, so we should use them as boats, or serving vessels for other ingredients.  I agreed and went to the store to pick up something to fill them with.  When I came back we had all of the fixins for chorizo stuffed zucchini boats.

With just a little bit of spice from the chorizo this bite was awesome
