Chicken Tinga Taco's

Thursday, February 8, 2018



Don't you love when you find a new recipe that's the absolute BOMB.com and super easy to make a big batch of?  I'm pretty sure this is going to freeze pretty well too so I plan on portioning out into individual ziplock baggies for easy grab and go lunches or dinners when I'm in a pinch! I also love that this fits in with my 80 day obsession meal plan very well!!!

Ingredients

3 cups shredded chicken breast (I cooked mine overnight on low in the crockpot with about 1 cup of low sodium chicken broth but water would work too)
1 cup low sodium chicken broth (for sauce)
1 tsp unflavored gelatin
1 tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup chopped onion (approx 1 medium)
4 cloves minced garlic
1 cup all natural tomato puree
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano leaves
2 bay leaves
2 canned chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped
1 tbsp adobo sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp lime zest or finely grated lime peel
1/4 tsp groun black pepper
1/4 tsp himalayan salt
8 (6 inch) corn tortillas

Directions


  1. Sprinkle broth with gelatin in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a medium nonstick pot over med-high heat until fragrant.
  3. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently for 3-5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  4. Add garlic; cook, stirring frequently for 1 minute
  5. Add broth mixture, tomato puree, chili powder, oregano, bay leaves, chipotle chili peppers, adobo sauce, lime juice, lime zest or peel, salt, pepper and shredded chicken. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, or until sauce is reduced by half.
