Breakfast Queso Fundido

Breakfast Queso Fundido

While I was looking into queso fundido for my chorizo queso fundido I came across an idea that nearly floored me, a breakfast queso fundido! Yes, that's right, a hot melted cheese dip for breakfast! I hardly needed an excuse to make it! What makes this a breakfast queso fundido is that it is full of chorizo sausage and scrambled eggs which would make for a great breakfast all by themselves let alone in a hot melted cheese dip! In addition to the chorizo, scrambled eggs and cheese this queso fundido is filled out with some onions, garlic, tomato and a jalapeno for some extra heat! I have to admit that I was a little bit concerned about how scrambled eggs would work in a dip like this but they were a natural fit and they made for one amazingly tasty breakfast! This breakfast queso fundido would be the perfect way to start off the big game day right!

Let them have hot melted cheese dip for breakfast!

I'm a bad breakfast eater, but THIS I can get behind!

I'll take any chance to eat a cheesy dip, so a breakfast dip sounds ideal in so many ways to me!

If you put the tortilla chips in the dip you have mijas! You look so skinny in your picture. How do you do it?

I like the way you think! I have an egg, in some form, every breakfast (recently I've been all about the stir fried veg & rice with a chopped up omelet on top and some sweet chilli sauce...). But now I see what my breakfast has been missing. CHEESE!!!!! Trying this tomorrow, I think. Thanks!

What an awesome idea to have this for breakfast!! Ahh, I'd totally wake up every morning at 6am if I knew this would be in front of me! haha :) said...

Wow…I love this. Definitely delicious if serve with bread. But maybe can make it into pizza topping too. :)

I made this dish this weekend. It was AMAZING. I added a few more eggs, and less cheese (to make it more like a mexican scramble).... SO YUMMY!!!

I have been trying to cut back on my carbs, this looks great to do it.

This sounds great but I have to call you out for misleading people with your picture. Cooking uncased chorizo creates vast amounts of orange oil. It would have turned everything orange. There is no way to have it look that way without draining the oil. If you did drain, you left that step out.
