Californio Style Chicken Pie


Made this after reading California Mission Cookery.  

12 fried tortillas
1 1/2 c chopped cooked chicken
sliced olives
2 ortega chilies chopped
1 T fat
1 1/2 large tomatoes
2 T minced onion
1 smashed clove garlic
salt and pepper
1/2 c broth or more if this gets dry add small amt of water

Line the pan with 6 tortillas, chicken, olives, and chilies.  Boil up the rest for 5 to 10 minutes and take out tomato skins.  Blend with stick blender and pour over chicken. Cover with rest of tortillas and the following sauce:

1 /2 to 3/4 c cream cheese
1/2 cream

Blend with the stick blender and pour over pie.  Bake at 350 till hot (160 F)  20 - 30 min. Please go buy an instant read thermometer, they are $12 at the grocery and cook your food to the correct temp.
