Now that the holidays are coming, you’re sure be planning what you’re going to offer your family. In my case, I like to prepare Mexican dishes, practical and yummy such as chicken tinga.
Chicken Tinga is very versatile, you can offer it as a snack over tostadas or as a more formal dish accompanied by rice, beans and salad. My family and friends like it on tostadas, so this time I’m going to make it this way and I will enjoy it accompanied by a cold Coke. What else could I ask for?
The key ingredient for this dish is chile chipotle, but tinga de pollo is not necessarily a spicy dish, you choose the level of spicy.
For this recipe I used chipotle chili and jalapeño from La Morena, along with beans and sauces of this same brand, you can find them in Fiesta mart stores. Coke is right there in the soda hall.
I hope you prepare the recipe and enjoy it at your gatherings as much as we do.
