Ingredients

4 oz chorizo

1 cup onion -- finely diced

1 cup mild green chile -- diced

non-stick cooking spray -- as needed

12 oz Monterey jack cheese -- shredded

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Directions

Cook chorizo in large skillet over medium heat, stirring often and breaking meat into small pieces. Drain excess fat. Add onions, and cook until translucent. Add green chilies; cook until hot. Remove from pan.

Lightly coat a 400* F preheated griddle with non-stick cooking spray. Place 3 ounce portions of cheese in mounds on griddle. When cheese begins to melt place a spoonful of chorizo mixture over each cheese mound. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Once cheese has fully melted, fold each circle in half, completely covering filling. Serve immediately with tortilla strips and cilantro.
