10” Dutch oven

Baking time: 15 minutes

2 cups shredded and cooked chicken breast
12 corn tortillas

Ahead of time cut tortillas into strips or triangles. Deep fry in oil until golden brown. Set aside. Then make sauce by placing tomatoes, ½ the onion chopped, cilantro and salt in blender until pureed. In a saucepan add 2 Tbsp of oil and heat. Add sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. In a 10” Dutch oven layer some of the tortillas, sauce and chicken. Repeat the step once more. Sprinkle with cheese and remainder of raw sliced onions. Bake at 350° F for 15 minutes.
