    Miss Annie's Note:

    From a local restaurant in San Antonio, La Fogata. This is a popular appetizer and easy to make. If you can't get Chorizo where you live, you can use this Chorizo to make your own.

      Tried this with the family. They loved it with both corn tortillas or chips.

      Deelish! This has always been a favorite of mine. Since this is a very rich dish, I recommend corn tortillas rather than flour. That's how it's served at my favorite grill in Matamoros, where I first experienced queso flameado.

      Yummy! We thought this was exactly as we remembered having it at La Fogata. We served it for company and they were impressed also. I tore up the cheese into several pieces and put in a shallow baking dish - then sprinkled the cooked chorizo on top. Then put in the oven at 325 for about 25 minutes. The cheese melted perfectly and the edges were just slightly browned. Beautiful.
