  • 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.
