Recipe by KatrinaRadia
READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • At least ½ Leftover Rotisserie Chicken/ Whole pieces / Breasts boiled in water to cover,.
  • Drain, reserve liquid, set aside to cool then bone, skin and chop.
  • Reduce the remaining broth to about 1 1/2 cups or so while chopping this stuff:
  • ½ as much yellow onion as you have chicken. About 2 cups of Red Chile Puree, either from dried Red Chiles dehydrated and blended to a puree, or look in your grocers freezer section. Hot or mild your preference.
  • Throw it all in the broth with 1 teaspoons Oregano, 1 tsp Cumin, 1 Tlbs chopped garlic. Simmer til onion is soft, if it’s still watery stir about ¼ cup cornstarch into some cold water or cooled broth, then add back into the stew to thicken. Once the stew is a satisfying thickness you can layer it as you would lasagna *using 1cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or more if you’re a cheese hound like me. 9 - 12 White or Yellow corn tortillas use any stale taco shells you might have. Tom with Cheese and bake at 350 until done.
  • * if you just want some awesome Red Chile Chicken Stew, add par boiled chopped to bite size potatoes in at this point and when it looks like soup, put it in a bowl garnish with cheese and eat with a fresh hot flour Tortilla.
