Place evaporated milk, poblano chile, serrano chile and bouillon in a blender; cover. Blend for 15 seconds or until smooth.

Step 3

Transfer chile mixture to a serving bowl; fold in queso fresco and onion. Set aside.

Step 4

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet over medium heat; fry each tortilla 20 seconds on each side. Place on paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.
