Corn tortillas are filled with shredded chicken, onions, tomatoes and chillies, then deep fried until crispy. This dish always does well at dinner parties. Serve with soured cream and salsa.
Great recipe! try replacing the jalapeno peppers for chipotle peppers, you can find them canned on the Mexican produce section. Beware 'cause they are HOT! - 05 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I just made the meat recipe and put it on tostadas. It was good, but next time I will probably top the tostadas with crema mexicana and some green taco sauce. I also substituted the tomatoes for a can of diced tomatoes (drained), since out-of-season tomatoes are sometimes poor quality. - 19 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My 14 year old daughter and her friend made this. It has now become one of the family favorites. We usually soften the tortillas on a hot griddle or in a small amount of oil to make rolling easier and use toothpicks to fasten before frying. - 04 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
