I didn’t originally write this recipe for the website, but it’s chorizo and melted cheese. How could I not share it?

Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 10


400g fresh Mexican chorizo sausage
1 large sweet onion – diced
1 jalapeño pepper – seeds removed – small dice
1g cumin
30g cold-pressed avocado oil (or other cold-pressed neutral-flavoured oil)
20g all-purpose flour
300g whipping cream
3g salt
250g Monterey Jack cheese – shredded
250g mozzarella cheese – shredded
4 green onions – sliced or cilantro – finely chopped


Place a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

Add the chorizo, onion, jalapeno, and cumin. Cook, breaking apart the sausage until meat is lightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place a large pot on medium-high heat and add the oil.

When the oil is hot, whisk in the flour, stirring constantly until the mixture turns a toasted tan colour.

Stir in the cream and salt.

When the cream nears a simmer, stir in the cheese a small amount at a time.

Stir the chorizo mixture into the cheese sauce.

Garnish with green onion or cilantro and serve.
