  • Give the sauce and chicken a stir, making sure the sauce covers all chicken chunks.
  • Feel free to add any extra ingredients and personalize it to how you want.
  • Once you are happy and got it just right, it time to close it by putting on the top layer.
  • You do this by adding another layer of corn tortilla delicately on top of the main area (where the ingredients are).
  • Feel free to sprinkle more cheese or salsa on top of the top corn tortilla.
  • Pop it in the oven for 25 minutes with the cooking pot lid on.
  • Keep checking to avoid burning and too see the corn tortilla crisping up.
  • Once you are happy, take it out and let it cool down.
  • Cut a slice or take a serving spoon and dish on a plate.
