Chicken  Tinga

The Best Ever

Every recipe of yours I've tried is so flavorful and wonderfully spicy! We are trying to meal prep more so we don't eat out, and honestly I prefer this tinga to anything I've gotten at a restaurant. Thanks for sharing your passion! ~ Maggie




First, heat some olive oil in a large skillet and add chopped onions and jalapeno peppers. Cook them down. Add the garlic and cook.


Season some chicken thighs with salt and pepper, then add them to the pan. Give them a nice sear on each side.


Process the tomato sauce and chipotles in adobo sauce in a food processor. Blend until smooth.


Next, pour the mixture into the pan, covering the chicken. Stir in the seasonings. Bring the mixture to a quick boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and easily pulls apart.


Remove the chicken and shred it with a couple of forks.


Return the chicken to the pan and simmer in the sauce  to let the flavors develop and meld with the chicken. Boom! Done!
