  • 1 jalapeno chile, seeded and minced
  • 2 scallions, minced, both white and green parts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Tortilla chips, for serving


  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a plate with paper towels. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chorizo and sauté, breaking it up with a spoon or spatula as it cooks so it becomes brown and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer chorizo to paper towel-lined plate. If sausage is still in big clumps when it has cooled, use your fingers to crumble.
  3. In a medium saucepan heat beer just until barely simmering. Add Roth Fontina, GranQueso® and Havarti cheese a handful at a time, stirring frequently, and adding the next handful as soon as the preceding batch is melted. Stir in the jalapeño, scallions and salt and pepper. Transfer the queso mixture to a 1-quart shallow baking dish.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until bubbling. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
