  • 2 poblano chile peppers (I substituted 1 large jalepeno)
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 ounces fresh chorizo casings removed (I used venison chorizo, that I had made. If you like the recipe, send me a comment and I'll post it. It is the BEST!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup lager
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 cups grated muenster cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • Tortilla chips for serving


  • Preheat the broiler. Put the poblanos on a broiler pan and broil, turning occasionally, until charred all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, cover with a plate and let steam until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Scrape off the charred skin with a paring knife and remove the stems and seeds; chop the peppers and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in an 8- or 9-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat; add the chorizo and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the scallions and poblanos and cook until the scallions are wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring to coat, 1 minute.
  • Add the lager and bring to a boil; cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Add the cheese, a handful at a time, stirring until melted before adding more. Transfer the skillet to the broiler and broil until browned and bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with chips.

    1. Chorizo is one of my favorite sausages! I have made it myself too with pork and venison! Thanks Jane!
