Pollo Fundido

Pollo Fundido created by CabinKat

My husband loves to order this at Garcias, and so we had to find a recipe to make it at home. We found one on the web and have changed it a little to suit us.

ingredients

directions

  • Boil chicken in water (or broth) until cooked through.
  • Let cool enough to handle, and then shred. Place in large mixing bowl.
  • Saute green pepper and onion in a small amount of butter or oil until pepper is tender and onion is translucent.
  • Add to chicken in bowl.
  • If you have a deep fryer, fill it up and turn it on. If not, heat up 2 inches of oil in a large fry pan over medium-high heat.
  • While the oil is heating, make sauce. Combine cream cheese, sour cream, jalapeños, half and half, and garlic cloves together in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth.
  • Add half of the sauce mix to the chicken mixture.
  • Add 1/2 cup of cheese to chicken mixture, and stir to combine all together.
  • Place approximately 1/2 cup of chicken mixture on a tortilla and roll up "burrito style". Repeat for remaining mixture.
  • Fry "burritos" in oil until golden brown, turning once if frying in a fry pan.
  • Remove to paper towels to drain.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Place chicken "burritos" in a large glass pan (9x13 is recommended).
  • Pour remaining sauce over the top (you can reserve about 3/4 cup, if desired, for serving on the side).
  • Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Place in oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

    Our daughter absolutely loved Pollo Fundido. I found this and made it for her; it was one of the heartier dishes I could make that she enjoyed even with the illness of her chemotherapy. She has passed away and I don't get to making it as much; but every little creamy, delicious morsel is consumed by my family when I migrate to the kitchen on a rainy day to take the time to prepare this. It may be a little time consuming for some, but well worth every single step! Way to go...this one is a definite keeper!

    Left Alaska and missed this dish above so many others up there. This made me a bit nostalgic! Added extra jalape

    We also bake them and we don't pour the sauce on top it was a bit too much sauce for us but the recipe is awesome!

    My BH & I really enjoyed this recipe. We cut the recipe in half which made 5 large burritos. I've never made a fried burrito before & this one came out delicious. It was creamy on the inside and still carried the crunch even after baking. We had it with a side of lettuce topped with sour cream and re-fried black beans. Would do this again. Thanks for posting.
