½ medium onion
2 serrano chili peppers diced
10 ounces beef chorizo
3 cups Oaxaca cheese or other white melting cheese
5 Mexican green onions (optional)
2 nopales (cactus paddles) (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil on medium flame in large pan. Once hot, add onions and sauté until translucent.
  3. Add chile and chorizo and sauté breaking up and stirring constantly to avoid burning for about 5 minutes or until chorizo is thoroughly cooked.
  4. Transfer half of the mixture to a baking dish (or molcajete) and add 1 ½ cups cheese. Add remaining chorizo, then cover with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is thoroughly melted.
  6. In the meantime, heat 1 tablespoon oil on medium-high flame on large griddle. Once hot, add Mexican onions and cactus paddles. Sprinkle with salt and turn every five minutes until slightly blackened on each side, approximately 15 minutes total.
  7. Remove cheese from oven and serve with cactus paddles sliced lengthwise, onions, and warm corn tortillas or homemade tortilla chips (see recipe below).
