Everybody's favorite gameday sandwich gets a makeover in this melt-in-your-mouth fundido dip. With both ground meat and ground pork sausage, this easy appetizer is not for the faint of heart. Worcestershire sauce adds a tangy zing while green chiles provide a layer of heat. Serve with Fritos at your next watch party, or bring it along to a tailgate.
3/4 pound lean ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork sausage
1/2 small white onion, chopped
1/2 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped
1 (8-oz.) can tomato sauce
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 (5-oz.) can diced green chiles
4 ounces Oaxaca cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
2 1/2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 2/3 cup)
Large corn chips (such as Fritos Scoops!)
How to Make It
Preheat broiler with oven rack 8 inches from heat.
Cook beef, sausage, onion, and bell pepper in a medium skillet over medium-high, stirring constantly to crumble, until beef and sausage are cooked through and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain mixture, and return to skillet.
Stir together tomato sauce, ketchup, water, brown sugar, flour, vinegar, mustard, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, and salt in a medium bowl. Pour over beef mixture, and stir to combine. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes. Stir in green chiles.
Transfer mixture to a 2-quart baking dish or cast-iron skillet. Top evenly with cheeses. Broil in preheated oven until cheese is golden and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with corn chips.
