  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inches), cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 8 flour tortillas (6 inches), cut into 1/4-inch strips

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup chicken broth


  1. In a large skillet, saute corn tortilla strips in oil in batches for 1 minute or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the corn tortilla strips, flour tortilla strips, stuffing, onion, red pepper, jalapeno, cilantro, chili powder, sage, coriander, cumin and salt. Stir in egg and broth.

Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
