  • 1 16 oz package of Chorizo Sausage the kind in the plastic casings – looks like short hot dogs.
  • 1 ½ lbs chicken breast – sliced in small thin pieces.
  • 1 small can of chopped green chilies
  • ½ container of white Mexican dipping cheese I like Gordo’s original Cheese Dip 16 oz package


  • Remove the chorizo from the plastic casing by cutting off the clamp on one end and squeezing the contents into a skillet. Brown the chorizo over medium heat. When nearly cooked through, add the chicken breast slices. When chicken is cooked through, add the can of green chillis and stir well. Add ½ the container of Mexican dipping cheese, stir to melt the cheese well. Add more as desired. Serve hot. Garnish with Mexican crumbling cheese and cilantro


Make sure to remove the chorizo from the casing.
Be sure to purchase the type of chorizo that comes in a casing and not the kind that resembles keilbasa sausage.
