  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.


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

I used one green and one red bell pepper instead of the mushroom and used Velveeta and cheddar cheese in 1:1 ratio and using only 2 lbs of cheese total in 3/4 cup of chicken broth. The amount o...

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.
