  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation

Step 1

Roast the poblanos over a gas fire, or in the oven. (400 15 mins, turning until the skin blisters. Peel off outer skin)

While the poblanos are roasting, sauté onion and bell pepper in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chicken and next ingredients; except tortillas and cheese. Heat through, then remove from heat.

Step 2

Cut tortillas into 1-inch pieces; layer one-third of tortilla pieces in bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Top with one-third of chicken mixture and lay a poblano over the chicken mixture. Add 1 cup cheese. Repeat layers twice.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes.

 

Enjoy!
