Pollo Fundido
Also referred to as Pollo Con Queso en Tortilla

This is a tastey New Mexican dish that I order frequently from Arriba Mexican Grill in Phoenix, Arizona. "Pollo" is spanish for chicken, and "con queso" means "with cheese". This is essentially a fried Chicken Burrito covered in Cheddar and Cream cheeses. It's made Low-Carb by using Low-Carb Tortillas. Note: NOT an "induction" meal.
