Remove meat to a plate. Shred and add ½ cup cooking juices.

To make salsa, place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a chargrill to a high heat. Cook corn and chillies until lightly charred. Slice kernels from corn. Place chillies in a ziplock bag. Cool. Peel away skin. Remove stem and seeds. Chop.

Shallow fry tortillas in a small frying pan for 1 minute on each side, or until golden. Drain on paper towel.
