Corn tortillas are filled with shredded chicken and baked in a creamy green tomatillo sauce. The 'suizas' sauce is Spanish for 'Swiss,' a nod to its creaminess.

Salsa Suiza:



  • Line a griddle or large frying pan with aluminum foil. Heat over medium-high heat. Add tomatillos, onion, chiles, and garlic. Grill until charred, 7 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally to cook evenly. Allow vegetables to cool slightly.

  • Transfer grilled vegetables to a blender with water, cream and 1/2 cup Chihuahua cheese; blend until smooth. Season with chicken bouillon granules; add additional water to thin sauce, if necessary,

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat a small drizzle of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry tortillas in hot oil for a few seconds, one by one, until soft but not crispy. Add more oil as needed. Place cooked tortillas on a baking sheet lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

  • Pour 1/3 the sauce into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Fill tortillas with equal amounts of shredded chicken, roll up, and arrange in a single layer over the sauce. Pour remaining sauce on top and cover with remaining 1 cup mild Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until melted, about 25 minutes.
