- 400 grams of cooked chicken breast
- 6 corn tortillas
- 200 grams of smoked bacon
- 300 grams of cream cheese spread
- 100 grams of grated cheese
- 50 grams of grated gouda cheese to sprinkle
- 2 onions
- 1 jet of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of enchilada spices
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
We start by peeling the onion and breaking it in several pieces that we put in the mincer. We chop it until it is almost liquid so that the salty cake with corn tortillas is better.
Trick: The onion does not add flavor, nor is it noticeable, but it does have a lot of juiciness to the filling.
In a wide frying pan we put a splash of extra virgin olive oil and put it on the fire. Add the onion and stir from time to time.
While, we cut the cooked chicken breast into pieces and chop it until almost crushed in the grinder. We put it in the pan together with the onion.
Trick: Chicken breast can be substituted for turkey breast or York ham.
Then, chop the bacon and add it also to the pan stirring and mixing very well, and let cook.
Add the spices and stir. We put the cheese spread above and lower the intensity of the fire a little. After a few minutes, with the heat of the pan the cheese will be soft and it will be very easy to mix it with the rest of the ingredients forming a paste.
Trick: Use the spices that you like. I put for enchiladas because I had a pot at home, but you can use whichever you have or more you want.
By last, add the grated cheese, mix well and keep the filling of the corn tortilla cake on the fire until it has melted. We withdraw and reserve.
For assemble the salty cakeIn a removable mold that has the same diameter as our corn tortillas we put one at the base. Next we put two tablespoons of the filling that we have in the pan, spread with the help of a spoon and cover with another tortilla. We press so that the dough is well settled and spread. We repeat this step until we have no filling. Cover with an omelette and sprinkle the surface with gouda cheese.
We put in the oven preheated to 180 ºC and bake for about 20 or 25 minutes approximately. We remove from the oven and let cool before removing from the mold.
We can also serve the corn tortilla cake with chicken and cheese immediately, but it is preferable to cool and settle to ensure a perfect cut. Microwave before serving. Ideally, take it warm, but not excessively hot. Bon Appetite!
