DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300°F
  • Heat chorizo in a large skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly and spoon off most of the fat.
  • Slice cheese into 1-inch cubes; place half in a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with half the chorizo and remaining cheese. Top with remaining chorizo. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until creamy and bubbly.
  • Remove from oven and drizzle with brandy. Carefully light with a match; brandy will flame up and burn out quickly. Top mixture with crumbled chiles, green onions and cilantro. Serve immediately with tortillas.
