It never fails that friends or family like to get together for an impromptu celebration. Sometimes it’s a posada, an end of the year celebration or just a weekend reunion with lots of food. When this happens I have to prepare a delicious dish for at least 6-10 guests and with little to no time to prepare. Luckily, I have one of my go-to Mexican dishes that not only is delicious, but super easy and quick to make.
Pastel Azteca reminds me of home, when my mom used to prepare this dish for us. There are many ways to prepare this lasagna like dish, but I would like to share my version with you. It’s a perfect dish for the holidays! If you prefer a little spice you can add strips of roasted Poblano peppers as a topping or you can add a Serrano chile to the salsa before it’s blended.
The flavor combination of the tart tomatillos, the spice of the jalapeño and sweetness of the corn, can only be complemented with Cacique® Crema Mexicana and a finishing touch of Cacique® Queso Cotija. This is the perfect make ahead meal because it only gets better when stored overnight or frozen for a midweek family meal.
