Tasty Tuesday May 26

Chilaquiles, a fancy name for “let’s use up that leftover whatever.” This one, we’ll use chicken or turkey. And a few shortcuts. 
4-5 corn tortillas, cut in half and sliced into half inch strips.

Tomatillo verde sauce, Herdez sauce is a good brand.

Shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken or leftover turkey

Sour cream or Mexican crema

Shredded Mexican blend cheese. 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, put the tortilla strips in the oven on a cookie sheet to crisp. Watch them and take them out and stir to crisp evenly. Don’t let them turn brown and burn. 
To assemble, put a layer of crisped tortillas, a layer of shredded meat, a layer of cheese and some of the tomatillo sauce, just enough to moisten. Build about two layers of everything and top off with a layer of crema. Bake about 20 minutes until heated through. Serve hot. 

 You could probably also use leftover shredded pork or beef.
