Pollo Fundido

Rachel Ellis Recipe

By Rachel Ellis Rachel_Ellis

depends on how much chicken used

Pollo Fundido is a Mexican dish that I stumbled upon at a Mexican restaurant. It was so cheesy, gooey, and delicious that I decided I had to learn how to make it.

pinch tips: How to Mince Garlic


chicken breast
mexican dipping cheese
6 to 8 ounces milk (just add enough to get to the consistency you prefer.)
chili salt (1/4 cup sea salt, 1/4 cup pure chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, pinch ground oregano. mix together and store in an airtight container. this makes 1/2 cup of chili salt.)

Directions Step-By-Step

Saute your onions in a lightly greased skillet and set them aside.
Sprinkle your chicken with chili salt and begin cooking it in the skillet.
Grate the Cheese and melt according to directions. I add the milk a little at a time until it gets to a consistency I like. You don't want it to be so thick you can't pour it, but so thin it's like water either.
After you have all your chicken cooked through, put the onions back in the skillet and turn the burner off. Now you are ready to pour your cheese over the top and it is ready to serve!

I just made this tonight and this recipe was spot on for a meal that I would always order at a local favorite Mexican restaurant. I just need to adjust the amount of milk I needed to add to the cheese. I only used about 1/2 cup, but definitely would add 3/4 cup next time or a little more. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I would recommend to anyone!!!
