Chicken Tinga is the name of the amazing taco filling that can be found at every street-food stand in Mexico City. Our authentic flavours are the deeply smoky, slightly spicy and earthy flavours of a chipotle blend that completely transform simple chicken into zesty chicken tinga tostadas. We ve put a twist on a classic salsa by doing roasted cherry tomatoes mixed with a special salsa sauce to get a lovely sweet but warm heat running through your tinga. This with a smoky BBQ sauce spiked sour cream makes for really different style of wrap. We’ve added plenty of options for you in the ingredients section but it’s just as epic with the short list of 5. Have fun with it!

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the chicken

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

    Mix the chicken with the CHIPOTLE RUB and the lime zest and juice. Bake on a tray in the oven for 20 mins.

  • 2.

    Roast the tomatoes

    Drizzle the tomatoes with oil on another tray and cook in the oven for 10 mins. Meanwhile, do step 3.

  • 3.

    Prep the condiments

    Mix the SMOKY BBQ PASTE into the soured cream. Keep aside.

    Put the roasted tomatoes in a bowl and carefully squash them with a fork (watch out for the hot juices).  Mix the SALSA PASTE through, then keep aside. 

    Remove the chicken from the oven then turn it off. Put your tortillas into the oven for 1 min to warm up in the residual heat.

    Slice the chicken into thin strips.  

  • 4.


    To make your Tinga, spread guacamole (if using) on each tortilla, followed by the chicken, salsa and BBQ cream, along with grated cheese and spring onions (if using) and a squeeze of lime. Wrap it up and eat.

Easy to do but spicy

Helen - Jun 10, 2019

No thank you

Emma - Jun 07, 2019

Omg the chicken Tinga is absolutely amazing, everything is so juicy & you can taste all the different spices. The bbq pasta you mix with sour cream is so good & the salsa is a bit spicy but really adds a 4lworks well with the dish. We did use the stand & stuff flour tortillas as we all prefer them to the corn tortillas. We will definitely be buying this again x

Jacqueline - Jun 07, 2019

Lovely flavours. Salsa too watery so makes it very messy.

Leigh - Jun 02, 2019

Nice meal, salsa spicy, chicken and sauce aren’t spicy. Kids (3&8) enjoyed the chicken, my 8 year old is a very fussy eater. Nice easy prep

A bit too spicy and felt there should be more to it.

Helen - May 29, 2019

Taste ok, but, nothing special, very messy to eat. Overall not worth the bother

Janine - May 27, 2019

Too wet

Margaret - May 27, 2019

Wouldn’t have this again. Tomato salsa was too runny. We like our food hot and spicy but the flavour in the salsa and sour cream were overpowering. Didn’t really taste the chicken because of this.

Holly - May 27, 2019

Really good, used big wraps more like fajita style and was amazing!! Also used two chicken breasts and worked fine

This is one of our faves and a regular on the list but this time the tomato mix was incredibly salty. We ended up abandoning it.

Belinda - May 19, 2019

Loved this! Easy and tasty! Quite messy to eat though as there’s a lot of sauce.

Amazing recipe, we love this one, super tasty

Ashley - May 06, 2019

Just finished eating this and think it's one of my favourites. Great mix of flavours with the zesty, spicy chicken, smokey sour cream and juicy tomato salsa. Made the guacamole to with it which nicely topped it off. Will order again, maybe even in my next box.

Would suggest adding more veg such as peppers or salad

Louise - Apr 14, 2019

Tasty AF

Heather - Apr 09, 2019

Wasnt sure about this when I got it but it was amazing. I drained the liquid from the tomatoes after mashing them up after looking at the reviews. It was still very messy! But delicio

Susan - Apr 08, 2019

One of our faves, had it a few times now.
