Chicken Chilaquiles

H and I love Mexican food. Whenever we travel out of Angola, we'll purposely hunt down restaurants by their cuisines. It's not as if you can't find taco shells or tortillas in Angola, but you must be willing to pay a high price for it as well. And in our grand scheme, no matter how much we love food, paying an Angolan price is never one of them.

But one reckless day, I decided to splurge a little bit and bought some corn tortillas and make chicken chilaquiles for lunch :)

Chicken Chilaquiles (serves 2)

First, make the shredded chicken. 
Set oven to 200 C. In a baking pan, coat a chicken breast meat with salt, chili powder  & olive oil.
Bake for 20 mins. Turning the meat halfway if it's a thick one.
Once it's cool enough to handle, shred the meat.

Secondly, the salsa. 
Dump 2 tomatoes, 1/4 onion, 1 green chili (deseed, if needed), bunch of cilantro, salt & lemon juice into your food processor. Process till desired texture. Set aside.

Putting it all together..

Brown the tortillas on both sides
Spread the mayonaise
Put a big leaf of lettuce
Add the shredded chicken
Add shredded cheese
Add salsa
et pour moi, some dollop of chili :)
Carefully fold into half moon, use a knife to aid you if necessary.

 Voila. H loved it so much that we're going to buy more tortillas :)
Next time we'll do a mince beef version

Have a great weekend!
