Ingredients

  • 12 fresh tomatillos, husks removed
  • 1.5 white onions, coarsely chopped
  • 1.5 poblano peppers, peeled and seeded
  • 1.5 jalapeno peppers, seeded
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 3 leaves fresh mint
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 4.5 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • .5 cup vegetable oil
  • 18 (6 inch) white corn tortillas, cut into 3 strips
  • 1.125 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1.125 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius.
  • 2. Prepare the tomatillo salsa by blending tomatillos, onions, poblano peppers, jalapeno peppers, cilantro, garlic, mint, and salt until smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 3. Add the cooked chicken to the tomatillo sauce and continue to simmer until the chicken is heated through, about 5 minutes more.
  • 4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the tortilla strips in batches until they become crispy and lightly browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain them on a plate lined with paper towels.
  • 5. Layer half of the tortilla strips in a 2-quart baking dish. Spread half of the tomatillo sauce over the tortillas.
  • 6. In a bowl, combine the pepper Jack cheese and Monterey Jack cheese. Sprinkle half of the cheese mixture over the tomatillo sauce.
  • 7. Repeat the layering process with the remaining tortilla strips, tomatillo sauce, and cheese mixture.
  • 8. Bake the dish in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
  • 9. Allow the dish to cool for about 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy your crispy corn tortilla bites in salsa!
