Green Chile Chorizo Queso

Cook Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 8-12


  • 8 oz Hill Country Fare Chorizo
  • 16 fl oz Cookwell & Co. Green Chile Stew
  • 2 lbs H-E-B Easy Melt Cheese, cubed


  • In a large saucepot, add the chorizo. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add green chile stew to the cooked chorizo. Cook on medium-high for 2 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium and stir in cubed Easy Melt Cheese. The queso is finished once the cheese is melted and fully combined with the other ingredients.
  • Chef's Notes: This can also be prepared in a slow cooker by cooking the chorizo in a sauté pan, transferring it to the slow cooker, and adding the remaining ingredients. Cook on high for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

    Chef's Notes: For a pop of color and flavor, add sliced scallions on top!
