ADD your cheese topped by the chorizo to a small cast iron or oven proof dish and bake for 10 minutes.
SET the oven to the broil setting and broil for another 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. The best is when the cheese starts getting some brown spots, but don't over cook it or it will become chewy.
REMOVE form oven and enjoy with some warm tortillas! This dish needs to be enjoyed while hot. As it cools down, the cheese becomes hard to scoop. If this occurs, insert back in the oven and broil for another two minutes to reheat.
