  • 1/3 cup Cacique Crema Mexicana
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder

  • Heat the olive oil on a pan and add the diced onions.
  • Cook on a medium heat until they start to caramelize and turn brown, about 20 minutes.
  • Lay the frozen french fries on a large baking tray and cook as per the manufacturers instructions.
  • In another pan, cook the chorizo and ground beef together, drain any grease that may appear leaving only the meat.
  • Make the chipotle crema by adding the chipotle powder and cumin to the crema and stirring until combined. Set aside.
  • Once the french fries are cooked, adjust the oven temperature to 425 degrees F.
  • Center the french fries in the middle of the baking tray and arrange the chorizo all over the fries.
  • Top with the diced onion and both types of grated cheese.

  • Drizzle the crema over the melted cheese and sprinkle with the chopped cilantro.
  • Serve at once on the baking tray.
