  • 53 oz Tomatillo
  • 7 Serrano chiles
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • Salt
  • Chicken concentrate
  • Water


  • 10 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 Onion
  • Tortillas
  • Panela cheese
  • Salt
  • Oil
  • Cotija cheese
  • Sour cream



  • Blend all the ingredients of the salsa group. To make it easier you can blend tomatillo last.
  • Heat a saucepan with oil and add the sauce. Let it boil and check the seasoning.
  • If the sauce is very thick add broth or more water.


  • Separate the egg yolks and whites from the eggs.
  • Using a mixer, beat egg whites until stiff. 
  • Add 1/2 tbsp of salt, 2 tbsp of wheat flour, continue beating and then add the egg yolks. Keep mixing at low speed.
  • Make the tacos with a piece of panela cheese and some onion slices.
  • Pass the tacos through the beaten egg and fry in hot oil.
  • When the tacos are fried, bathe with the green sauce and serve with cotija cheese and sour cream.



  • You can also make Indios Desnudos (naked Indians). Follow the same steps without bathing the tacos with eggs.
  • You can add chopped onion to serve along with cotija cheese and sour cream.
