Melted Cheese with
“Chorizo and Mushrooms”

This dish is normally served as an entree dish. Although it is so big, so abundant and so nutritious that it can be served as a main course.

– The melted cheese is also served with tortillas so you can enjoy it in the shape of tacos or in the shape of quesadillas.
