My Idea of Comfort Food…

Pastel con Pollo
…is my mother’s pastel con pollo.  Think of it as chicken pot pie kicked up several notches: a very short crust covers a delectable filling made with chicken, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, Vienna sausage, chorizo de Bilbao, and green olives all cooked in a smooth, creamy sauce bechamel.  Alas, Mom only makes this once a year – but it’s so good that it’s definitely worth the wait.  ^_-
