Refrigerate 1 hour. If desired, remove and discard chile de arbol.

Reduce heat to medium; stir occasionally until hot. Top with cheese. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired. Serve warm. Makes 8 servings.

If needed, additional chicken stock may be added while mashing to reach a smoother consistency.
