  • Ingredients

    • 2-2.5 pounds boneless chicken breast
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 onions, sliced thinly
    • 5 garlic cloves, minced
    • 3-5 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (these can be found in most grocery stores in the Hispanic aisle; you will most likely find them in a can or a tin), add depending on the level of heat you prefer; I added 5 chilies because I like my tacos to be spicy
    • 28 ounces diced tomatoes (1 large can or 2 small cans)
    • ½ cup chicken broth
    • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
    • salt and pepper to taste (I tasted mine and didn't feel that it needed either)
    • queso blanco (optional)
    • 1 large red onion, diced
    • 2 tomatoes, diced
    • 3-4 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon pepper
    • ¼ lime
