1 cup shredded fontina

1 cup shredded mozzarella

1 cup shredded pepper Jack 

Four 6-inch flour tortillas

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Pickled jalapenos, for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to broil.
  2. In a nonstick skillet, brown the chorizo until cooked though. Drain on several paper towels and set aside.
  3. In a 12-inch cast-iron skillet, layer the grated Cheddar, fontina, mozzarella and pepper Jack and top with the chorizo. Broil the fundido until bubbly and golden.
