    Directions

    1. Place 15 to 20 corn husks in a large stock pot; cover with hot water for 30 minutes to soften. Weigh down with a plate to keep husks submerged.
    2. To make salsa, combine all salsa ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse for 30 seconds to 1 minute until pureed; scrape down sides if needed.
    3. Combine chicken filling ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. Salsa and chicken filling can be made up to 24 hours ahead and refrigerated.
