Queso:
  • 1 lb Cooked Pork Chorizo
  • 16 oz Melting Cheese Velvetta or similar & cubed
  • 4 oz Plain Cream Cheese
  • ¼ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • cup Diced Tomatoes
  • cup Diced White Onions
  • 1.5 tbsp Diced Jalapeño’s
  • 2-3 oz Light Beer or Milk your preference
Guacamole:
  • 2 Ripe Avocados removed from skin and seed
  • cup Red Onion chopped
  • cup Cilantro chopped
  • 2 medium Limes juiced
  • 1 Jalapeno stemmed seeded & diced
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Kosher Salt to taste
Toppings:

Instructions
  1. Preheat your Oklahoma Joe’s Drum Smoker to 250F for indirect cooking. Add some wood chips or wood chunks for added smoke flavor.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the homemade guacamole and set to the side until ready to use.
  3. Add a cast iron skillet or foil cooking pan to the smoker along with all the ingredients for the queso. Close the lid and let it smoke for 45 minutes until the cheese has softened and is almost melted. Once the cheese is looking good, use a spoon to stir up the queso until fully incorporated. If the queso is too thick for your liking, add some milk to the skillet to thin it out and keep stirring until fully incorporated again. Close the lid and let the queso continue cooking for 20-25 more minutes or until it is to your liking. When the queso is done, pull it off and let it cool for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Garnish your queso with some guacamole, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, sliced jalapenos, chopped cilantro and some sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
