Pastel azteca is a Mexican dish, known in US as tortilla casserole or tortilla pie. The traditional dish is made by alternating layers of gently fried corn tortillas with layers of salsa de jitomate, chile poblano strips, corn grains, onion strips, sour cream and Oaxaca cheese or Chihuahua cheese. It is common to add a meat ingredient (coarsely shredded chicken, ground beef or pork). The pastel azteca is oven-baked.
