Queso Fundido with roasted green chilli vinaigrette

Method

 

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Brush the chillies with oil, season and cook in the oven for about 5-10 mins until charred on all sides, turning once or twice. Then transfer the chillies to a bowl, cover tightly with clingwrap and set aside for 10-15 mins. When cool enough to handle, peel the chillies and remove the seeds if you like.
  • Then process the chillies with the vinegar, ¼ cup oil, the honey, garlic and quite a bit of seasonings until well combined. Set aside.
  • To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pot, add the flour and cook over a medium heat, continually stirring. Then add the hot milk, all at once, and vigorously whisk until lightly thickened.
  • Add the grated cheese with a little salt and plenty of ground pepper and cook until the cheese melts, continually whisking.
  • Then spoon the sauce into a large gratin (or any ovenproof dish). Scatter the goat’s cheese on top and cook under the overhead grill until the goat’s cheese is golden.
  • When ready, sprinkle the chilli vinaigrette over the cheese mixture and serve with plenty of corn chips on the side.
