Tongue Tingling Tinga

When people think Mexican food they think tacos, which technically is Mexican food… Mexican street food to be more precise.

What i’m gonna be doing here is give you guys my mom’s recipes of authentic Mexican Food (some of them not so Mexican) which i grew up eating and hopefully you guys will try them out and enjoy them as much as i have done all these years.

Tinga is one of my favorite things my mom ever made for me, I decided to make it with chicken cause I like it better, you can make it with pork, beef or whatever meat you like best.

I will be back soon with more recipes, let me know what you guys think about it in the comments section if you do end up making it.

When people think Mexican food they think tacos, which technically is Mexican food... Mexican street food to be more precise. What …



  1. Chicken StockRinse the chicken thighs with water and put them in a big pot with about tow thirds of water, add two stalks of celery, an onion and three large cloves or garlic and let it boil for an hour or until the chicken is really tender and falling off the bone, take the chicken out and let it cool(you can freeze the chicken stock that’s left to be used for something else like soup)
  2. Blending SauceAfter the chicken cools, take it out, debone it and shred it. now for the sauce part, take eight plum tomatoes, cut them into pieces and put in in a blender along with a teaspoon of salt and pepper and ground cumin, one large clove of garlic and the chipotles (also about a spoonful of the chicken stock) it’s up to you how many chipotles you wanna put in it, i like it spicy so i usually put the whole can of chipotles in there but if you only want the smokiness and deliciousness of them then put 2 in there.
  3. Heating SauceNow that you have everything ready heat up a large sauce pan and add two tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper,slice up three medium onions and sautee them until tender, now put the sauce in there, then the chicken and two bay leaves and let it simmer for about 3o minutes.
  4. The way i usually make them is with tostadas(fried tortillas), just put some tinga on top of the tostada and and some avocado and you're good to go. or just put it in a bowl with avocado and go to town.
