  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the chorizo, breaking it as it cooks. Once it’s cooked, transfer the chorizo to a bowl.
  2. With the fat left on the pan, add half of the onion, half of the jalapeños, all of the poblano, and all of the garlic to the skillet over medium heat. Cook until very soft, stir occasionally, about 10 mins. Stir in half of the tomatoes, season with salt, and cook until the tomato juices evaporate, about 6-8 more mins.
  3. Combine the remaining tomatoes, onions, and jalapeños in a small bowl. Add the chopped cilantro and lime juice, season with salt to taste, then mix well and set aside.
  4. Pour the evaporated milk into the skillet, and let warm.
  5. Toss the grated cheese in a large bowl with the cornstarch. Add the cheese, one handful at a time to the skillet, stirring as you go.
  6. Continue to stir until fully melted and thickened, to check your desired thickness use a spoon and if it coats the back of a spoon, it’s ready. Remove from heat.
  7. Top with crumbled chicken chorizo, pico de gallo, additional cilantro, and sour cream. Serve and enjoy!
