It’s Taco Tuesday! Okay, I’m not making tacos, but it is a Mexican dish. And…I have to admit it wasn’t planned. I just happened to have a craving for something spicy and because I had all the ingredients on hand, it worked.
Corn tortilla shells (10-12)
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
2 cups Monterrey Jack cheese, (or a combination of whatever you have)
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon lime juice
2-3 jalapenos, finely chopped (or 1 can green chilies)
salt & pepper, to taste
additional cheese for topping
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, cheese, and garlic. Roll this mixture into the tortilla shells and place into a greased 9×13 pan.
In a saucepan, melt the butter then add the corn starch. Stirring constantly, cook for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add the chicken stock whisking continuously until the corn starch is cooked and the mixture begins to bubble. Add the remaining ingredients and heat thoroughly, but do not boil or the sour cream will separate.
Pour the sauce over the prepared chicken tortillas.
Top with cheese and bake for 25 minutes until it is bubbly and the cheese is browned.
Even the mister loved this and he is not a fan of spicy food 🙂
