  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium size yellow onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 can diced tomatoes drained
  • 1 1/4 cup tomatillo salsa
  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup crema or sour cream
  • 6 corn tortillas torn
  • 8 oz Monterey Jack Cheese shredded, divided
  • 1 small avocado diced
  • torn fresh cilantro leaves


  1. 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.

  2. Remove skillet from heat. Stir in chicken, crema, tortillas, and 1⁄2 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese. Top evenly with remaining 1 1⁄2 cups cheese.

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