    Vicki in CT's Note:

    After trying a fabulous dish of melted cheese and chorizo at La Fogata in San Antonio Tx, I searched until I found a similar recipe. This one is very close and excellent. From the cookbook, New Texas Cuisine by Stephan Pyles.

      Delicious on tortillas! Nice ooziness (created my own word, I think). Nice consistancy. Doesn't make a whole lot, so I would probably double the recipe next time and add more heat. I would also add 1/4 t salt or salt to taste and another jalapeno (at least). Of course, being from Texas, we like it hotter than most--this is probably just the right heat for most. Thanks for the recipe! Made for ZWT5.

      Made this queso as a New Years Eve appetizer last night. Everyone loved it. I accidentally forgot to put in the onion, and it was still really good. I can't wait to make it again so I can include the onions, which I love. I served it with tortilla chips for dipping versus flour tortillas. Thanks for posting.
