This is quite tasty. Used mozzarella, as that’s what we had and Italian parsley, as we don’t care for cilantro. Will make this again; would increase corn and chipotle/adobo. Might try with hot sausage or even leave out the meat as the flavours are such that it could be a good vegetarian supper. Rodney Strong Knotty Vines Zinfandel was very nice with it.
Made this as directed except used Rotisserie Chicken for ease and time and worked great. Flavors all seemed to set each other off well. Family loved it and will be making again
Feta cheese is a better sub for queso blanco than mozarella. Queso blanco is crumbly and salty--more like feta than anything else, although mozzarella is cheaper than either of the others and melts wonderfully. Terrific recipe--I upped the corn to 3/4 c, just because I like corn, and used chicken breast instead of thighs--I know breast is dryer, but it's what my family prefers. I did have queso blanco, which doesn't grate particularly well as it prefers to crumble.
