6 servings


  • ½ cup sour cream

  • ½ bunch fresh sorrel, chopped

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups masa harina

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 ¾ cups water

  • 2 ounces butter, melted

  • ½ teaspoon vegetable oil

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 cup cubed skinless, boneless chicken breast meat

  • ½ bunch kale, stems removed and leaves coarsely chopped

  • ½ onion, sliced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Stir sour cream, sorrel, lime juice, 1 teaspoon salt, and sugar in a bowl until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  2. Mix flour, masa harina, baking powder, and 2 teaspoons salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Gradually pour butter and water into flour mixture while mixing at lowest speed; mix until a dough just starts to come together.

  3. Turn dough out onto a clean, flat surface and knead 3 to 4 times. Separate dough into 1 1/2 ounce balls, cover, and let rest for 1 hour.

  4. Press each dough ball in a tortilla press lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap; transfer each tortilla to a baking sheet.

  5. Lightly coat a cast-iron pan with 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil and heat over medium-high heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and cook until lightly golden, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  6. Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat. Stir in chicken; cook until browned around the edges, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in onion, kale, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper; reduce heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring often, until kale is wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  7. Spoon chicken-kale mixture into each tortilla, top with sorrel sour cream, and serve.
