How to Cook Buttery Tortilla Cones With Chicken and Parmesan

  1. For the chicken-veggie mixture:

    Heat the oil in a skillet over low heat and add the onion. Cook and stir until the onion is tender.

  2. Add the tomato paste and stir for 10 seconds. Add the chicken and canned tomatoes and continue to stir. Add the water and the lasagna, broken into pieces, and stir.
  3. Add the dried basil and parmesan, season with salt and pepper, stir a little, then simmer for 6-8 minutes. Add the fresh parsley, stir for 10 seconds, then set aside.
  4. For the flour mixture:

    Add the flour and water to a smaller bowl and mix them.

  5. Assemble the cones:

    Cut the tortillas in halves. Take one half, coat it partially on one side with flour mixture using a brush (this will act as a glue). Wrap it to make a cone. Do this with the other 3 tortilla halves.

  6. Fill each cone with chicken-veggie mixture taking care to also add 1 tablespoon of butter in the middle.
  7. Coat the interior rim of each cone with flour mixture and close them by pressing.
  8. Fill a medium cooking pot halfway to 2/3 with vegetable oil and heat it. Deep-fry each cone until golden brown. Place them on a serving tray.
  9. Add the parmesan and fresh parsley to a smaller bowl and mix them. Sprinkle this mixture over the cones when serving.
