This is good stuff! I don't know if I've had Mexican food that can top this recipe!
Terrific recipe! I haven't had Pollo Fundido in 20 yrs. since my sis moved away from a town that had an insanely good Mexican restaurant. It's true that this would be greater with shredded chicken, but the diced works and is quicker (to me.) I almost doubled the sauce part of the recipe since my family LOVES saucy foods, and I was out of jalapenos so I just used a tablespoon or so of green Tabasco in the sauce. I also used about double the spices in the filling because we like spice and flavor. My 2 and 3 year old boys ate EVERYTHING and asked for more. I'll be making this again and again!
I'm used to having shredded chicken instead of the chunks of chicken. The filling was kind of bland, but this is still the closest recipe that I've found thus far. Next time I'll use less veggies in the filling, make shredded chicken, and use more seasonings.
Great...I have had this in restaurants and it was really similar. The only thing I had trouble with was the chicken coming out while deep frying and getting all the grease off. But other than that...great!!
Overall this was pretty good. Next I will coat with olive oil and bake instead fry to make it more healthier. The Cheese was good but, it dry out after a while and was not good for leftovers in micro- wave so next time I will use a different recipe for the cheese cream sauce. Overall husband and I thougt this was okay with few adjustments of our liking. Filling was excellent.
I made a casserole out of the ingredients. I lowered the total fat by using non-fat sour cream, half & half & sour cream. Tasted like a sour cream enchilda.
