1 lb cooked chorizo sausage*

1 mild green chile, stemmed and seeded

2 tbs Darigold Butter

2 tbs olive oil

1 cup vertically sliced onion, cut 1/8-inch thick

2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms

2-3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1/4 cup chopped green onion

Tortilla Chips

Darigold Sour Cream


Cut chorizo into 1-inch pieces. Cut chile into small chunks. Process chorizo and chile in food processor until sausage is the texture of hamburger.

Cook over medium-high heat in a heavy skillet until meat is heated throughout. Drain meat mixture to remove excess fat, if necessary. Spread meat mixture evenly over the bottom of a medium size baking dish and set aside.

Heat butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms are lightly browned. Pour mixture evenly over meat. Sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese evenly over top.

Bake in 350°F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Garnish with green onion. Serve hot with tortilla chips and a side of sour cream. 

Recipe Tip

Chorizo sausage may be found in the Mexican food section of most large grocery stores, or at a Mexican market; fresh chorizo sausage, cooked until crumbly and no longer pink, may be substituted.
