Vegan Queso Dip and Quesadillas

INGREDIENTS
1/2 lb Herbivorous Butcher Mexican chorizo, crumbled (about a half log)
1/2 lb Herbivorous Butcher pepper jack cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
3/4 cup of soy or almond milk
Heaping tbsp of Double Take Salsa
1 tbsp olive oil

DIRECTIONS
Crumble the chorizo. On medium heat, drizzle olive oil in frying pan. Add chorizo and brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Cut the pepper jack cheese into 1/2 cubes. On low to medium heat, add cheese and milk to a small sauce pan. Stir as cheese melts into a liquid consistency.

Add chorizo and salsa to cheese sauce. Stir to mix and serve immediately.

It is recommended to keep queso warm in a slow cooker, stirring occasionally to keep its liquid consistency. Add more milk if your dip starts to thicken!

If you want your dip to have more of a kick, add fresh jalapeños or a few splashes of your favorite hot sauce.
