Chicken Tinga Tacos
Adapted from PinchofYum
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup roughly chopped sweet onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1–2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
3⁄4 cup canned crushed fire-roasted tomatoes
1⁄4 cup chicken stock
1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups shredded cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works!)
10 (6-inch) corn tortillas
2 ripe avocados, sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 lime, cut into wedges
Sauce: Heat a large skillet over medium. Once warm, add the oil and onion. Sauté for 4 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more. Stir in the chipotles, oregano, and cumin, and toast for 1 minute. Add in the tomatoes, stock, and salt. Bring to a simmer, and cook for 7 minutes.
Blend: Place the tomato mixture in a high-powered or regular blender, and blend until smooth.
Chicken: Return the blended sauce to the pan over low heat. Add the chicken, and cook for 5 minutes. Taste and add more salt if necessary.
Serving: Prepare the garnishes. To assemble, top the tortillas with the chicken and garnish with the avocado slices, cilantro, red onion, and cotija. Serve with a lime wedge for squeezing.
