Ingredients

Pretzel Crisps® to serve
1-2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/3 Cup Finely Diced Onion
1/3 Cup Finely Diced Bell Pepper
3.5 Ounces Cured Chorizo, Quartered & Diced
2 Rounded Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
3/4 Cup Lager Style Beer
1/2 Cup Whole Milk
8 Ounces Medium Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
4 Ounces Extra Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
2-3 Dashes Worcestershire
1/2 Teaspoon Dried Mustard
Salt & Pepper to Taste

 

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. When oil is good and hot, carefully add the peppers & onions and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the chorizo and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow some of it's fat to render into the mixture. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir constantly allowing it to cook for an additional 45-60 seconds.
  2. Add the beer and milk and allow the mixture to come up to a simmer and thicken a bit (4-5 minutes). When mixture has thickened a bit, add the cheese a handful at a time, stirring until it melts before adding the next handful. Splash in the worcestershire and the dried mustard and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste if desired and serve immediately with Pretzel Crisps®, carrots and celery!
