  • 1 Chicken Breast Boiled and Shredded
  • 1/2 White Onion Sliced
  • 20 corn tortillas
  • 1/8 cup vegetable oil

For the Salsa

  • 5 Large Red Tomatoes
  • 1/4 White Onion
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 Jalapeno (optional)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 peppercorns
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • Salt to taste


  • Queso Fresco or cotija
  • Table Cream
  • Cilantro Chopped


  • Start by roasting the tomatoes, onion, garlic and jalapeno (if you are using it) in a hot pan for about 3-5 minutes, or until they start to turn brown. 
  • Once roasted, add all of the salsa ingredients except for the olive oil to a blender and blend until smooth. 
  • Add the olive oil to a hot frying pan and add the onion slices, cooking for about  minutes. 
  • Add the salsa and let boil for about 5 minutes, adding additional salt if necessary. Set aside. 
  • In a separate pan, lightly fry the tortillas by adding them to the frying pan with the hot vegetable oil for about 5 seconds each. They should be soft but not fried like a tostada. Remove excess oil with a paper towel. 
  • Coat each tortilla in the salsa, and put on a plate. Fill with the chicken or queso fresco and fold over before topping with more queso fresco, crema, and cilantro.
