"Mexican fondue loaded with flavor. Additional fillings could be added to this easily: shrimp, crawfish, black olives, etc. Great over chips, baked potatoes, or just about anything."

  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a pot; add American cheese, bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cheese melts into the broth, about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; saute chicken and chorizo in oil until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes. Add mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, green onions, and garlic; saute until all vegetables are tender, 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Stir chicken mixture into the melted cheese; bring to a simmer. Stir Cheddar cheese into the mixture and cook until completely melted, about 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Processed cheese food (such as Velveeta(R)) works well in this recipe in place of the American cheese.

I have only ever melted American cheese with milk in the past and clearly I have been doing it wrong all of these years. The chicken broth melted it into a perfect consistency without it burning all over the sides of the pan and it only took minimal stirring. I love mushrooms but they really seemed out of place in this recipe to me and so I left them out. I also left out the 8oz. of cheddar in the end. I had it but it just wasn't necessary and that is why I am giving this a 4 instead of 5 star rating. The consistency was perfect after the chicken was added and it would have been entirely too thick if the additional cheese would have been added. Overall this was delicious but I recommend eating in small doses due to the amount of sodium.

Modified the recipe, used cilantro, garlic, one fresh tomato and two cans of Rotel. I subbed shrimp for chicken. It was very tasty. I will attempt to post a pic.
