This was a hit at our last gathering :) Thaks for the recipe.

I did a full blown pastel. After putting in the evaporated milk, I transferred the creamy stew into small square pie plates. Allowed it to cool thoroughly while I made a a buttery pie crust using real BUTTER. I placed the grated cheese after the pots were cool. Topped each pie dish with it and brush it with egg wash.

The extra effort really paid off. ;) Your creamy chicken stew worked very well with the BUTTERy crust. Yummm!

Yes it is...if you don't have chorizo de bilbao in your area you can use hotdogs as a substitutes, but you must have to fry it first before adding into your chicken pastel...its yum...:) happy & i really appreciate your efforts in trying my recipes...thanks much Shelia...

Another delicious dish. I there something else to use instead of chorizo de bilbao? I don't think I can find it in my part of the country.
