Easy to Make Pollo Fundido



Flour tortilla stuffed with a delicious chicken filling, fried, topped with jalapeño cream cheese, and cheese.
Pollo Fundido
Pollo Fundido means “molten chicken” and it’s a popular Mexican dish that consists of a Chimichanga or burrito (baked or fried) filled with shredded chicken and a Jalapeño cream cheese sauce melted on top

Normally this dish would be a little spicy inside, but I like to make it milder so my grandkids will eat it and enjoy it. You can go mild, medium, or spicy.
