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.

Very nice

Elisa - Feb 14, 2019

So tasty!! Absolutely loved it and will be ordering regularly. Salsa was a bit watery but just put it in a pan and reduced it for a bit...perfect! Nicely spicy, fantastic!

Rebecca - Feb 14, 2019

Much noicer than expected. I forgot to choose my recipes and this isn't something I would usually choose so I was pleasantly surprised.

Kathryn - Feb 09, 2019

Quick and easy to do but I would definitely give it a higher heat rating than ONE. The chicken rub is quite spicy!!
