Chicken con Queso

Makes 6 servings

Every Mexican buffet should include this fantastic chicken dish. Set out bowls of all of your favorite Mexican toppings — salsa, guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes and/or additional shredded cheese.


The chicken con queso mixture is also very good on crisp tortilla chips and makes a terrific ready-made topping for nachos or filling for quesadillas or tostadas.

Adjust the amount of liquid you add back to the chicken mixture at the end of step 3 based on how thick you like the sauce. Slow-cooking boneless skinless chicken breasts works well, but be careful not to overcook them. If you try to extend the cooking time, they will become dry.

11⁄2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts 750 g
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
1 clove garlic, minced 1
1⁄2 tsp ground cumin 2 mL
1⁄4 tsp salt 1 mL
1⁄4 tsp freshly ground black pepper 1 mL
1 cup reduced-sodium ready-to-use  chicken broth 250 mL
1 can (4 oz/127 mL) chopped mild green chiles
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese 250 mL
2 tbsp minced fresh cilantro 30 mL
1⁄2 cup salsa 125 mL
1⁄4 cup sour cream 60 mL
Flour tortillas, warmed

Place chicken in one slow cooker stoneware.  Sprinkle with jalapeño, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Pour broth over top.
Cover and cook on Low for 5 to 6 hours or on High for 2 1⁄2 to 3 hours, until chicken is no longer pink inside and a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part
registers 165°F (74°C).
Using tongs, transfer chicken to a tray. Pour liquid into a deep bowl. Using two forks, shred chicken. Return chicken to stoneware and stir in green chiles, cheese, cilantro, salsa and sour cream. Skim fat from liquid. Measure out 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) liquid and pour into stoneware (discard excess liquid).
Cover and cook on Low for 30 minutes or until heated through. Turn to Warm for serving.
To serve, spoon chicken mixture into center of each warm tortilla, then fold tortilla over filling.
