4 portions
  • 1 chicken
  • 1 corn, shelled
  • 3 poblano peppers
  • 1 to taste olive oil
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 150 grams manchego cheese, grated


Cook the chicken breast in water with half the onion and salt, to taste for 45 minutes. Let it cool and crumble it. Reserve. Chop the corn and cook it in a pot with water and a little salt for 25 minutes. Roast poblano peppers on the stove burner, put them in a plastic bag to be sweat for 10 minutes. Remove the skin under the stream of water. Remove the seeds and veins and cut into slices.
Fry the corn tortillas in oil on both sides, so that they are soaked but not brown. Allow to drain on an absorbent paper towel. Cut the other half of the onion into slices and fry them in an open pan with a little olive oil along with the chili slices until the water they release is consumed, approximately five minutes.
Grind the tomatoes with garlic and a little water. Add them to the pan of the rajas. Add the shredded chicken and let season for ten minutes. Season with salt to taste.
Place a layer of tortillas in a refractory. Continue with another of the stew. Add a layer of cream, corn and cheese. Repeat until covering the refractory to its full depth. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 180 degrees, about 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Uncover and continue baking for five to ten minutes so that the cheese is golden brown. Serve cut into pieces as if it were a cake.
