Chicken Tinga

Chicken tinga is a classic Mexican dish made with shredded chicken in a sauce often made from tomatoes, chipotle chilis in adobo spice, and sliced onions.

Chicken tinga is frequently the first recipe any Mexican will learn to cook as soon as they move out of their parents’ house and live on their own. It reminds every Mexican of home, and the ingredients are very accessible. It can be a soupy stew served over white rice and with tortillas, but, if you cook it down to thicken a bit more, it’s a great topping on a tostada with fresh shredded lettuce, sour cream, cheese, avocado and fresh salsa.
