Pastel Azteca

or Azteca Cake

Today I want to introduce to you this amazing dish, I personally love it and I remember eating it since I was little, I’ve tried different versions of it, My grandma’s version, my Aunt’s version, but I love my mom’s version Simple and Classic.

No, this isn’t a sweet cake, it’s a delicious full with flavour cake.
You can make so many combinations with many ingredients, but we like to keep it simple.

If you love corn tortillas and chicken you are in luck!
This dish is going to be your new favourite one!

15-20 corn tortillas
1 chicken breast shredded
1 tomato sliced
1 onion sliced
Cheese of your preference
1 Orange pepper sliced
2 cups of sour Cream
1/2 cup Corn kernels

Cut the tortillas in little squares.

On a saucepan fry the chicken with the tomato and onion sliced. Set Aside

On a clean saucepan fry the corn tortillas with some oil and start layering the ingredients.
Tortillas, chicken, orange pepper, corn kernels, cheese and cream.

Cover them until the cheese melts and then you can serve.
