Skillet Queso Fundido with Fresh Tomatoes and Cilantro


  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Oaxaca cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 campari tomatoes on-the-vine
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced on a bias
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish
  • Blue corn tortilla chip strips, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Add both cheeses to a 6-inch cast iron skillet and toss together. Place in the oven and bake until melted and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Turn the oven to broil and cook for 3-4 minutes longer or until the top is golden brown.

  3. While the cheese melts, dice the tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces. Place the diced tomatoes onto a paper towel to soak up any extra liquid.

  4. To serve top the melted cheese with diced tomatoes, green onions and cilantro leaves. Serve immediately with tortilla chips for dipping.
