  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ cup chicken stock

  • 50 gr. 2 oz. cheddar, shredded (or as much as you want)
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Preheat oven to 175° C / 350° F.
For the Filling
  1. If you are using raw chicken, you will have to boil it and keep the stock.
  2. In my case I just shredded the chicken.
  3. In a skillet add 3 tbsp of olive oil and put in medium high heat.
  4. Throw the onion and the pepper and sauté for a few minutes, until they become soft.
  5. Add the wine and sauté until it is evaporated.
  6. Add the chicken, the paprika the taco seasoning, the salt and the ½ cup of stock and stir until most of the stock is evaporated.
  7. Turn off the heat and set aside.
For the Sauce
  1. In a pot put the margarine and flour in medium heat and whisk for couple of minutes.
  2. When the roux is ready throw the stock and the seasoning and increase the heat to high.
  3. Whisk until the sauce becomes thick.
  4. If you see that it is still runny, just mix in a glass 1 tbsp corn flour with 1 tbsp water and throw this to the stock.
  5. It will thicken in no time.
Assembly
  1. Butter a glass pan very well.
  2. Take the corn tortillas and put two soup spoons of the filling top with couple of tbsp of cheddar and wrap it.
  3. Place it in the buttered pan and do the same with the rest of the tortillas.
  4. Pour the sauce and throw the cheddar cheese above them.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
