The melted cheeses are a typical dish of northern Mexico and of taquerias around the country. It is a dish that when it arrives to the table the cheese is still bubbling because of how hot it is – no one will be able to resist.
In this dish interesting things happen as the cheese’s fresh flavor is combined with the mushrooms’ delicate flavor (which complement perfectly well). But also the chorizo’s condimented and spicy flavor comes into place, which gives another dimension to the melted cheese.
The melted cheese with chorizo and mushrooms is normally served as entree dish. Although it is so big, so abundant and so nutritious that it can be served as main course. And you will always find some tortillas so it can be enjoyed in the form of a taco or in the form of a quesadilla.
