Now let's get cooking:

  1. Let's start by cooking the chicken. In a large skillet over medium heat, add a drizzle of oil and sauté the onions until translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  2. Now it's time to bring in those lovely flavors! Add the diced tomatoes, minced chipotle peppers, dried oregano, ground cumin, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Give it all a good stir and let it simmer gently for about 5 minutes.
  3. While the sauce is simmering away, place the chicken breasts in a pot with enough water to cover them. Bring it to a boil and let it cook until the chicken is tender and fully cooked through—a process that usually takes around 15 minutes.
  4. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the pot and use two forks to shred it into bite-sized pieces
  5. Back to our simmering sauce—add the shredded chicken into the skillet with all those wonderful flavors. Stir everything together so that the chicken is coated in the sauce. Let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes, allowing all those flavors to meld together beautifully.
  6. While the chicken tinga is finishing up, warm up your tortillas. You can do this by wrapping them in a clean kitchen towel and microwaving them for about 30 seconds or heating them on a dry skillet for a minute on each side.
  7. Time to assemble our mouthwatering tacos! Take a warm tortilla and spoon some of that delicious chicken tinga onto it. Top it off with sliced avocado, fresh cilantro leaves, and a squeeze of lime juice.
  8. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas and ingredients, until you have a plate full of scrumptious Chicken Tinga Tacos ready to be devoured!


You've successfully created an absolute fiesta of flavors with these Chicken Tinga Tacos. The smoky chipotle sauce combined with tender shredded chicken and refreshing toppings like avocado and cilantro will transport your taste buds straight to Mexico. So gather your loved ones, grab those tacos, and enjoy this delightful culinary adventure together! 🌮🔥😋
