Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler to HIGH. Place oil in a medium-size cast-iron skillet, and heat over medium, swirling to coat. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and cumin. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in drained tomatoes and salsa. Simmer over medium-low, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.

  • Remove skillet from heat. Stir in chicken, crema, tortillas, and ½ cup of the Monterey Jack cheese. Top evenly with remaining 1 ½ cups cheese.

  • Transfer skillet to preheated oven, and broil until cheese is lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with avocado, and sprinkle with cilantro leaves.


Top Your Own: Set out an assortment of flavorful fixings, such as thinly sliced radishes, crumbled Cotija cheese, pickled red onions, and pickled jalapeño slices.
