Queso Fundido

Ingredients
1 small tomato, chopped
1 serrano chile, seeded, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
Kosher salt
8 ounces coarsely grated mild yellow cheddar
8 ounces coarsely grated Monterey Jack
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 4-ounce link fresh chorizo or hot Italian sausage, casing removed
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup lager
Tortilla chips

Directions
Mix tomato, chile, and oregano in a small bowl. Season with salt; let salsa stand for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss both cheeses with flour in a medium bowl. Cook chorizo in a medium saucepan over medium heat, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until it begins to render, about 1 minute. Add onion and continue cooking until chorizo is cooked and onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

Transfer chorizo mixture to a small bowl; return saucepan to heat. Add beer; simmer, stirring occasionally and scraping up any browned bits. Whisking constantly, add cheese mixture a 1/4-cupful at a time, allowing it to become blended and smooth between additions. Stir in chorizo mixture. DO AHEAD Queso can be made 30 minutes ahead. Let stand at room temperature.

To reheat, warm skillet with queso fundido over medium heat; stir until melted and bubbly.

Using a slotted spoon, spoon salsa over queso. Serve in skillet with a basket of tortilla chips on the side.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Ingredients
4 chicken breasts skinless and boneless
4 thin slices prosciutto di Parma
1/2 pound Gruyere, grated
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup panko bread crumbs
4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
1 clove garlic, peeled and finely minced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs
Extra-virgin olive oil

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.

https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/chicken-cordon-bleu-recipe2-1952383

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lay the chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, gently pound the chicken to 1/4-inch thickness. Remove the top sheet of plastic and lay 2 slices of prosciutto neatly over the top to cover the breast and sprinkle a quarter of the cheese over the prosciutto. Tuck in the sides of the breast and roll up tight like a jellyroll inside the plastic wrap. Squeeze the log gently to seal and twist both ends tight to form a nice log. Repeat with remaining chicken.

Season the flour with salt and pepper. Mix the bread crumbs with thyme, garlic and kosher salt, pepper, and melted butter. The butter will help the crust brown. Beat together the eggs and season so the flour, the eggs and the crumbs are all seasoned.

Remove the plastic wrap. Lightly dust the chicken with flour, dip in the egg mixture and gently coat in the bread crumbs. Lightly coat a baking pan with olive oil and carefully transfer the roulades onto it. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until browned and cooked through.

Cut into pinwheels and serve on top of Brussels Sprout Hash with Chicken Jus and Cranberry Chutney, if desired.

Pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc
