Ingredients

Gorditas

  • 2 cups instant corn masa for tortillas
  • 2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth or water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Filling

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 8 tomatillos, husked and washed, halved
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon chicken boullion granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (from 1 rotisserie Chicken)

Topping

  • 1 cup queso fresco cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Directions

  • 1
    In medium bowl, mix masa and 2 cups of the chicken broth until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 8 round flat patties, about 3 to 3 1/2 inches in diameter, to resemble a gordita. Cook gorditas in 12-inch skillet on medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes per side or until brown spots appear and dough is no longer soft. Set gorditas aside; cool 10 minutes. Make a 2-inch slit in side of each gordita to form a pocket.

    Place 3 tablespoons of the oil in a skillet; heat oil about 1 minute or until hot. Cook gorditas about 1 minute per side coating gorditas with the oil.

    Meanwhile, in blender place avocados, tomatillos, 1/2 cup of the chicken broth, cream, boullion granules and salt. Cover; blend on high speed 30 seconds until mixture is smooth. In 1 quart saucepan, heat remaining 1 tablespoon of the oil. Stir in the avocado mixture; cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir in the shredded chicken; cook and stir about 2 minutes until mixture is hot.

    Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the pocket of each gordita. Top half of the gordita with 1 tablespoon of the filling, if desired. Serve the gorditas with queso fresco, lettuce and sour cream.
