This queso combines perfectly melted cheese, topped with greasy chorizo, then swirled with homemade salsa verde, which comes together in a cinch thanks to my Zyliss Easy Pull Food Processor. No dragging out my huge electric processor, cords and bowls askew. Nope, just toss everything into the easy pull and ta-da! Salsa verde just like that. I'm even giving one away to one of you lucky readers out there! To enter, simply go to my instagram page, follow me and comment with what you would make with the Zyliss Easy Pull Food Processor!

- 1 lb. tomatillos, husks removed
- 1/2 jalapeno
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 onion
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 1/2 lb. pork chorizo
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 1/2 jalapeno, minced
- 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tbsp. flour
- 2 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 oz. white American cheese, shredded
- 2 oz. colby jack cheese, shredded
- pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat and cook the tomatillos, jalapeno, garlic, and onion for 4 minutes, until slightly charred. Add the roasted vegetables along with the cilantro and lime juice to your Zyliss easy pull food processor and pull about 20 times until smooth and well-blended.
In a large skillet, cook the chorizo over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks, then add the onion, jalapeno, and cumin. Continue to cook until the chorizo is cooked through. Remove from the heat.
In a medium sauce pot, heat the cream and flour until just simmering. Add in the cheese and whisk until the cheese melts completely and sauce becomes silky smooth. Add the pepper and whisk to combine.
Pour the queso in a serving dish. Add the chorizo to the center of the queso, then swirl the salsa verde around the outside. Serve hot with chips.
