Directions

Heat a saucepan over medium heat, and then pour in the vinegar and cook until very reduced.

Meanwhile, slice the chorizo to the thickness of bacon, and cut the queso fresco into 1/4-inch slices to fit over the chorizo. Dust one side of queso fresco with cinnamon. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and cook the chorizo to render some of the fat. Add the queso fresco, and continue cooking until the chorizo and cheese are browned.

Plate a chorizo slice and top with the cheese and a cilantro leaf, followed by a tomato slice and a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Plate the remaining stacks of chorizo and cheese. Squeeze fresh lime juice over each stack, and then arrange lime slices around the plate.
