Directions

Roast tomatillos: Lay quartered tomatillos, garlic, jalapeno, onion on a sheet tray and drizzle with olive oil. Place

under a broiler for 3-4 minutes until ingredients are well charred around the edges.

Remove from broiler and scrape all the ingredients into a blender. Add lime juice and cilantro and blend until smooth.

Be careful when blending hot ingredients - place hand firmly on lid of blender. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place shredded chicken in a large bowl, add scallions and cilantro. Season with cumin,

chile powder, salt and pepper. Add sliced tortillas and fold in roasted tomatillo mixture. Pour the mixture into an 8x11

baking dish. Top with crumbled Queso fresco and grated mozarella cheese. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake in oven for

25 minutes. Remove foil and finish under broiler for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Allow to

cool slightly before serving.
