Do you have a housewarming party to attend? Maybe a potluck dinner? Show up with this delightful recipe and steal the show. This authentic Cocoa Mole Casserole dish is created to satisfy all taste buds, and leave everyone with only positive things to say.
Ingredients (4 Portions)
6 Corn Tortillas, stale 1 day
4 boneless chicken breasts (approx. 1lb)
1 cup of shredded mozzarella
1/2 an onion thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon Vital Cocoa Mole Spice mix, or more to taste
Salt and pepper to season the chicken
Place chicken breasts into a saucepan and pour in enough water to cover. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, and simmer until chicken meat is cooked; 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer chicken breasts to a bowl, allow to cool and shred the chicken meat with 2 forks. In a bowl, mix chicken, Cocoa Mole spice mix, vegetable oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.
Preheat your oven to 350⁰F degrees. In a baking dish, add 3 tortillas, 1/2 of the shredded chicken, cheese and onion slices in separate layers, similar to a lasagna. Repeat process to form a second and final layer. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover during the last 10 minutes of baking.
