For the Tomato Sauce

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions cook for 5 - 7 minutes. Stir in garlic, jalapeno pepper, cumin and chile powder, continue to sauté for 10 minutes. Add diced tomato and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat. Simmer for 25 minutes over low heat. Season with salt and pepper. Cool (20 minutes) and puree sauce. Reserve.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a skillet heat vegetable oil. Add onions, sauté until translucent. Stir in jalapeno pepper and cilantro, saute for 3 minutes. Add Tomato Sauce and bring to a simmer. Add tortilla wedges to sauce and turn off heat (make sure tortillas are well coated with sauce and are evenly distributed). Top with shredded cheeses.
