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

  • 1.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 3.

    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.

  • 4.

    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!


Mexican Tinga Reviews

BASED ON reviews

Gordon - Nov 23, 2019

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

Good heat

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

The flavour combination was nice but I realisedwith this dish I don’t like quorn.

Kim - Apr 20, 2019


Cheryl - Apr 06, 2019

Perfect and not TOO spicy for my fussy teen

Marion - Apr 01, 2019

Gorgeous! Full of flavour and beautifully spicy. One of my favourites.

Jessica - Apr 01, 2019

Loved this, so quick and tasty

Regina - Mar 14, 2019

Perfect! Will order again

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

Maz - Jan 03, 2019

Was a bit disappointed with this one sorry

Nam - Dec 29, 2018


Dave - Dec 12, 2018

Bit too spicy salsa

Ian - Oct 18, 2018

Full of flavour, really enjoyable

Jonathan - Oct 09, 2018

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!!!

Linda - Sep 19, 2018

Quick and easy meal

Ralph - Aug 27, 2018

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

Not bad

Ally - Jul 28, 2018

Wow - this was a fiesta in my mouth! Sensational flavours, rich, tangy, smoky, sweet! Have ordered again!

Amy - Jul 22, 2018

Amazing! Can’t wait to order this again

Jackie - Jul 10, 2018

Whole family really enjoyed this.

Carley - Jul 02, 2018

Really lovely flavours and such an easy recipie to make. I substituted the Quorn for mixed pulses and it was delicious.

Laura - Jun 30, 2018

Not bad, but a bit spicy for me. Wouldn’t order this one again.

debbie - Jun 29, 2018

Delicious and very messy to eat
