  • Summary

    Smokey, spicy slow-cooked chicken tinga tacos with all the fixin's.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    • 1 28 ounce can crushed or chopped tomatoes
    • ½ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
    • ½ medium onion, quartered
    • ½ teaspoon kosher salt (plus more for seasoning the chicken)
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons chipotle pureé or paste (and a pepper or two, if you're feeling it)
    • 1 bay leaf
    • corn tortillas (my preferred method of heating corn tortillas is to place them on a plate between layers of paper towels, wet one sheet of paper towel, wring it out, and place it on the plate next to the tortillas, then microwave for 15-30 seconds until warm. Of course, you can toast the tortillas as well, but I find that this dries them out)
    • radishes (fresh or pickled)
    • fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
    • cotija cheese (or feta if you can't find cotija)
    • jalapeños, thinly sliced
