Mexican Tinga4.2/5 (BASED ON reviews)
An 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 ingredients into zesty tinga-style tostadas. We've put a twist on a classic salsa by doing roasted cherry tomatoes mixed with a special salsa sauce to get a sweet but warm heat!

Our 20 minute recipe
Roast the tomatoes
Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
Place your tomatoes on a baking tray and pop in the oven for 10 mins so they become slightly blistered.
Meanwhile, see step 2.
Marinate the quorn
Place the quorn chicken style pieces in a bowl with the lime zest and CHIPOTLE RUB.
Now quarter the lime and squeeze the lime juice into the bowl too and mix everything into the quorn.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan over medium high heat and then add the marinated quorn, stirring occasionally for 5-6 mins.
Prep the soured cream and salsa
While the tomatoes and quorn are cooking stir the SMOKY BBQ PASTE through the soured cream, then keep in the fridge until needed.
Take the tomatoes out of the oven when ready and carefully mash them up with a fork, mixing the SALSA PASTE through them. Keep aside.
Put it all together and serve!
To construct your tinga, place a dollop of guacamole (if using) in the centre of each tortilla, followed by the quorn, salsa BBQ soured cream, and grated cheese (if using) with a squeeze of lime.
Finally, wrap the tortilla up as tightly as you can and get stuck in!

Very easy to make
Kate - Oct 01, 2019
Great but I think I'd swap out the sour cream for a more subtle sauce
Kristen - Sep 29, 2019
Delicious, but I thought the stir through for the sour cream was too sweet. Otherwise amazing!
Lindsey - Aug 14, 2019
I added green peppers to the Quorn mix. With avocado rather than guacamole. Very nice and easy to make. Would order again.
Zoe - Aug 01, 2019
Very tasty but also very similar to a regular fajita
Steve - Jul 06, 2019
Melanie - Jun 09, 2019
Really nice and not too spicy. I added mushrooms and peppers which went well with the dish.
Wendy - Jun 09, 2019
We made this with wraps as easier to eat, brilliant mix of flavours. I am allergic to avocado so we substituted for a pepper mix. East to make and delicious to eat.
Ali - May 27, 2019
Nice flavour combos
Amy - May 15, 2019
Very tasty. Quick and easy but a bit fiddly/messy to eat
Jo - May 15, 2019
Lovely, but a missed opportunity to sneak more veg in. Great with wraps too.
Claire - May 08, 2019
Not too spicy, easy to make and totally delicious!
Matina - May 02, 2019

Eleanor - Mar 05, 2019
Really nice. A little spicy but I prefer mild food generally
Donna - Feb 24, 2019
Would reccomend using more wraps, 4 wraps were very full and difficult. To eat
George - Feb 20, 2019
Lime was optional on the app but not on the recipe card?!
Donna - Feb 18, 2019
This made 4 very full wraps, which were quite messy to eat - I would suggest using more wraps
Janine - Feb 18, 2019
Love this. Very tasty. I serve in soft taco shells. My only complaint, there's not enough of it. We don't have big appetites, but this is a side to other Mexican dishes.
Marion - Jan 26, 2019
I wouldn’t say this was mild! However, it was delicious - spicy and full of flavours. I’m not keen on meat substitutes so I used Halloumi cheese instead of the quorum chicken. It worked really well.
Claire - Jan 21, 2019
Sooo tasty!! It was nice and spicy and my hubby and I loved it! ??????
Janet - Jan 15, 2019
Plain sour cream or yoghurt and chopped fresh tomatoes would have been better than your salsa

Was a bit disappointed with this one sorry

Quite hot but enjoyable
Hafsah - Oct 07, 2018
Really tasty, used chicken and kidney beans with half a tub of tomatoes as i didn't have fresh tomatoes and is tasted amazing!! Also mixed the 3rd spice with Greek yogurt instead of creme fresh as a healthier alternative and was great!!!

Lovely flavours but too wet because of the tomatoes being roasted.
Rebecca - Aug 22, 2018
Way too sloppy
Daniel - Aug 20, 2018
Not enough on its own. Made some guac and additional filling
samantha - Aug 15, 2018
Taste was good. Would have liked it more spicy. We used soft tortilla wraps instead of tacos which worked well. Some lettuce would have been good with it as it lacked crunch.
Holly - Jul 31, 2018
