  • 18 oz. Amber beer

  • 1 whole Tomato Diced medium

Instructions
 

  • Heat your FireDisc skillet on high heat, once hot add the bacon and cook until half cooked and starts to caramelize
  • Slowly add the onions, Anaheim pepper and red pepper, to avoid spattering of fat
  • Saute the onions and peppers over high heat, until slightly colored (approx. 5 mins)
  • Add the Bayou Dust and Fire Salt, Stir well to mix the spices in
  • Add the Ground Chorizo, stir well. Cook Chorizo about 75% of the way (approx. 5 mins)
  • Pull all ingredients to the center and make a mound
  • Add the cheese (both) to the top of the mound
  • Add the masa to the top of the mound
  • Pour the beer over the top of the mound and allow to filter down thru the ingredients
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the masa has had a chance to thicken the queso
  • Turn off the FireDisc
  • Place the tomatoes in the center of the queso
  • Add the cilantro and stir to combine
  • Serve with your favorite tortillas chips, we like to arrange them around the edge of the queso and use the FireDisc as a queso display
