  • Cut up chicken into bite sized pieces if using raw. Dice onion and bell pepper. If you are using raw chicken, melt 1 Tbs of the butter or coconut oil in a pan and cook the chicken until done. Remove from pan and set aside. Melt additional 1 Tbs of butter or coconut oil and cook bell pepper and onion on medium low until soft, about 5 minutes. Add spices to pan. Mix them well with onions and peppers and cook for approximately 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the cup of broth and stir it until you've loosened up all the pieces of spice on the bottom of the pan. Add cream, chile, and salsa, mixing well. Cover and cook over medium low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. At the end of 15 minutes, very carefully remove 1 1/2 cups of the hot mixture and put into an emulsion beaker or blender. (PLEASE use caution here!) Blend mixture until thickened. If using stick blender, keep blender in the bottom of the beaker to avoid being burned. Carefully pour blended mixture back into pan. Stir well and then add yogurt. After its all combined, add meat. Mix meat into sauce and gather sauce, tortillas, and cheese. Preheat oven to 350 F. In a 9x13 baking dish, begin by layering sauce/meat mixture. Just put enough to wet the bottom of the pan. Place whole tortillas in bottom (do not overlap), then tear another tortilla and fit it in around the empty spots. Ladle half the sauce/meat mixture on top of the tortillas. Evenly spread 1/2 of the cheese over the sauce/meat mixture. Repeat for second layer, layering tortillas, then sauce, and ending with remaining cheese mixture. It's ready for the oven! Bake at 350o for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy! May be topped with additional sour cream.
