  • 8 ounces Mexican chorizo previously cooked
  • 2 tbs grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 white onion sliced into strips
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 large poblanos previously roasted, cleaned and sliced into small strips
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tbs silver tequila
  • 16 ounces Chihuahua, Oaxaca or jack cheese shredded
  • Mexican crema


  • To a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil and heat to medium. Add the onions and garlic. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Saute for 3 minutes.
  • Add the poblanos and tequila . Cook for a few minutes. Add the cheese and then the chorizo on top. Cover skillet with lid and continue cooking just until cheese melt. Uncover and drizzle with Mexican crema right before serving. Serve with chips or warm tortillas.


To roast poblanos quickly, place them in a skillet that has been preheated at medium heat for a few minutes. Drizzle in a little oil. Be careful because they will pop as the skins blister. Turn as needed until most of the skins have blistered. Remove from pan and place in plastic bag to steam and cool. Remove blistered skins, stems and seeds.
