Ok, I LOVE fundido, but I am not a fan of this recipe. Don't like the picante, olives or cheese choice.
Here's what I suggest for a restaurant quality dish:
Cook chorizo over med heat until most of the grease has cooked off (about 10-15 minutes). Drain and return to pan, increasing heat to med high. Cook until about 1/2 the meat is charred (about 5 minutes). Shred 8 oz Chihuahua cheese with jalapeno, 4 oz reg Chihuahua cheese, and 2 oz Cojita cheese in Cuisinart - blend together. Spray 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray. Layer 1/2 of cheese, then charred chirizo, then top with remaining 1/2 of cheese blend.
Cook at 325 for 15 minutes, until cheese is mostly melted. Stir around and broil for an additional 5 minutes, until top is bubbly.
Serve with warmed tortillas, tortilla chips or as a savory topping to chicken.
