Chorizo Queso Fundido

So I love Queso Fundido, but I don't get it often, because unlike queso dip it is just a big blob of cheese, whereas Queso Dip is more of a sauce.  Looking around on Pinterest, I found a recipe.  Well, let's just say I never need to have it at a restaurant again.

It took D all of 5 minutes to make.  He probably should have taken 6 minutes, because the cheese wasn't completely melted, but eh.  I think I liked it better than D.  True to form, it sat in my stomach like a big blob of cheese, but of course I'll have again.

Prep time: 2 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1 small skillet of dip
Serving size: a couple of chips dipped this cheesy dip,  (I say 4)
From OhSweetBasil.com

Ingredients
 1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup shredded queso quesadilla cheese or oaxaca
1 clove garlic, minced
8 ounces chorizo (used 9)
Tortilla chips for dipping (not used in Nutritional Information)

Preparation
Heat the oven to broil.

In a medium skillet over medium heat, add the chorizo and garlic and cook through, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a cast iron skillet (small) or ceramic dish, add the cheese and broil until melted (Ours was browned but not completely melted...the microwave would fix that). Top with drained chorizo and serve immediately with chips. notes
