Tortilla Torte

This recipe is a recent discovery that is the perfect dessert to accompany any Mexican dish. It's a simple recipe to prepare and keeps well for a couple days in the refrigerator.

Tortilla Torte
6 ounces chocolate (mixture of semi-sweet and milk chocolate is best)
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 1/2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
Milk chocolate to garnish

Melt chocolate with 1 cup sour cream and 1 Tbsp. powdered sugar in double boiler, stirring constantly. Once completely melted, remove from heat and place pan in cold water to cool chocolate mixture, stirring occasionally.

Place one tortilla on serving plate and spread evenly with 1/3 of chocolate filling, then repeat with other tortillas, ending with the last tortilla on top.

Blend remaining sour cream and powdered sugar together. Spread evenly over the fourth tortilla. Chill, covered with a large inverted bowl, at least 8 hours before serving. Garnish with milk chocolate shavings. Serves 8.
