Fried corn tortillas are filled with a mixture of chicken, green chilies, green chile salsa, and cream; then topped with Jack cheese, and baked to a delicious finish.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 cups chopped, cooked chicken
- 1/2 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
- 1 (7 ounce) can prepared green chile salsa
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups whipping cream
- oil for frying
- 12 corn tortillas
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a bowl, mix together chicken, chilies, and salsa.
In a wide, shallow dish stir together salt and whipping cream.
Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Fry each tortilla for a few seconds, until it blisters, and immediately dip into cream and salt.
Fill fried tortillas with chicken mixture. Roll and place flap side down in a baking dish. Pour remaining cream over tortillas, and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake, uncovered, in a preheated oven until cheese has melted, about 15 to 20 minutes.
