I love the cilantro in this recipe. You can substitute Cheddar or other favorite cheese for the queso fresco.

Very good, but I must warn the heat level is not for the faint of heart. I made one change, not having a rotissory chicken on hand, I seasoned chicken breasts with lemon pepper and grilled. Then using 2 forks in a criss cross type motion, I shred the cooled chicken. Rico!!
