DIRECTIONS

  • Warm the oil in a heavy saucepan over med heat.
  • Add the sausage and cook for 2 minutes, or until the fat begins to melt.
  • Add the onion and garlic.
  • Cook until the chorizo is well browned.
  • Drain off the grease and add the tomato, chile, and stock.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer and slowly add the cheese, blending with a spoon.
  • As each batch of cheese melts, add more, cooking over very low heat.
  • When the cheese has melted and the mixture comes together, it is ready to serve.
  • Keep warm while serving.
  • Note 1- serve with tortillas or fresh tortilla chips.
  • Note 2- you COULD use canned pre-roasted poblanos, but roasting one yourself is really simple.
  • Take a poblano chili, rub with a bit of corn oil, put under the broiler and let it cook until the skin starts to char.
  • Turn it over and continue this way until the skin is charred all over.
  • Take it out (with tongs!) and put in a plastic zip-lock bag and let it sit until cool.
  • Remove the chile and the skin will peel right off, then tear it open and remove the seeds and stems.
  • It's that simple.
  • Just like roasting a bell pepper.
