2-3 cups of shredded white cheddar cheese

1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
10 Jalapenos (medium to large)
5 Garlic cloves
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
Salt and Pepper to taste

Spread jalapenos and garlic on baking sheet and coat with canola oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place baking sheet in the oven and roast for approximately 25-30 minutes or until jalapenos and garlic turn a dark brown.  While the jalapenos are roasting prepare (instructions below) Chorizo Sausage. Remove from oven and cool, remove stems from jalapenos.  Break out your food processor or blender and add jalapenos, garlic and apple cider vinegar, give it a whirl until smooth.  Add more apple cider vinegar if you would like a looser consistency.

CHORIZO SAUSAGE:
In a medium size sauté pan brown Chorizo Sausage.  Drain sausage in strainer, then move sausage to medium bowl and pat with paper towel to remove excess grease.  Set aside.

Place baking sheet in oven and bake for approximately 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.
