Pastel azteca is a traditional Mexican dish similar to lasagna, known in the United States as tortilla casserole or tortilla pie. The dish is made by alternating layers of gently fried corn tortillas with layers of tomato salsa, sliced poblano chillis, sweetcorn, sliced onion, sour cream and cheese: traditionally Oaxaca or Chihuahua. It is common to add a meat ingredient such as coarsely shredded chicken, ground beef or pork. Pastel azteca is baked in an oven. Part of Mexican culture, it is one of the most widely recognized dishes in Mexico.
