  • enough white onion, cut into rings, to serve
  • enough fresh coriander, to serve

Cook for about 40 minutes the chicken breast in the water with the cilantro, the onion, the garlic and the salt until it gets well cooked. Cool and shred.
For the green sauce, heat a pot over medium heat with the water, cook the tomatoes together with the chile, the white onion, the garlic and ½ cup of cilantro until the tomatoes change their color. Strain and blend with the rest of the cilantro, the salt and the whole black pepper until you get a smooth sauce.
Heat a pot over medium heat with a tablespoon of oil and fry the sauce until it reduces and thickens slightly, adjust seasoning and reserve.
Heat a skillet over medium heat with the rest of the oil and fry the tortillas lightly, remove and place on absorbent paper to reduce the excess fat.
Fill the tortillas with the shredded chicken, fold and place them on a plate, bathe with the green sauce and serve with cheese, cream, onion rings and cilantro. Enjoy


Serve with white onion rings and sour cream, fresh cheese and cilantro.


The trick for you to not shred the chicken is to put it into the blender and beat with the balloon whisk for 10 seconds. The result will be as good as any in a restaurant!
