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.

Ingredients

  • ·
    chicken breast
  • ·
    onion
  • ·
    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.)

How to Make Pollo Fundido

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute your onions in a lightly greased skillet and set them aside.
  2. Sprinkle your chicken with chili salt and begin cooking it in the skillet.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
