Step 1

Cook the chorizo in a pan over medium heat, breaking it apart as you go, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the onion, jalapeno and tomato and cook until the onions are tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the tequila, deglaze the pan and cook until most of the moisture is gone, about 2 minutes.

Sprinkle on the cheese and cook, stirring, until it melts, about 2-3 minutes.
