Foody Things

Queso Fundido at La Condesa in Austin, Texas

Think of queso fundido as chile con queso's stretchier, gooeier cousin.

This delicious specialty found throughout central Mexico is broiled to create a bubbly, charred top. The version at La Condesa in Texas is made with a combination of cheeses, including a tangy goat variety.

Instead of dipping chips into this queso fundido, use a spoon to drizzle it over tortillas. Mas, por favor!
