As part of changes being made to our newspaper website mtshastanews.com, we plan to seek and feature stories and photos from readers on holidays, life-changing events and special community events. This week: Cinco de Mayo recipes. Recipes sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will be published in the print editions of Mount Shasta Area Newspapers on May 5, 2010.
The first recipe we received comes from Karen Knight of Dunsmuir:
Pace Queso Flameado (Flamed Cheese)
3/4 lb chorizo (casing removed)
1 small onion (chopped)
2 tomatoes (diced)
3/4 cup Pace Picante Sauce
4 cups (1 lb) shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
Brown sausage in skillet; remove to paper towels. Drain all but 1 tsp drippings from skillet; add onion cook till tender. Return sausage to skillet; add tomatoes, Pace Picante Sauce. Simmer 15 mintues until most of liquid has evaporated. In a 9 inch baking dish, arrange 2 cups of cheese. Top with sausage mixture, cover with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 about 10 mintues or until cheese melts. Remove from oven; serve in individual bowls top with avacado slices. Use tortilla to dip into and eat.
