Chicken Machaca

This is a dish my mom has done well!  I love the way she makes it and I am happy to say it is the best leftover food ever! She takes a rotisserie chicken and shreds it up.  We usually eat this for dinner or lunch and I have to say it has become a dish that I really only like when she makes it.  There is just something she does to it that makes it so great.

What you will need:
  1. Cooked shredded chicken (you can buy it or make your own)
  2. Oil
  3. 1 Yellow chile(diced)
  4. 1 Anaheim chile(diced)
  5. 1/4 White onion(diced)
  6. 1 Medium Tomato(diced)
  7. Chicken Bullion (1 teaspoon with 1/4 cup of hot water) 

Saute the all the veggie in 1 tablespoon of oil.  Allow them to get translucent.  Add shredded and mix well.  Add dissolved chicken bullion in water and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes.  Be careful not to over cook as the chicken is really only trying to soak up the juices of everything else.

Eat on a tosada or plate it with flour tortillas, beans and avocado!

Here's to some good food!
