Siete Chicken Tinga Tacos

Siete Chicken Tinga Tacos

These chicken tinga tacos take little to no time to make, and pack a strong punch of flavor thanks to the combination of Siete's Chorizo Seasoning, chipotle peppers, and tomato mix. It also works great as a one pot recipe! Best results will come from cooking slow and steady.

1-2 (~1 tbsp) chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped

Full Time:

Serves 6

Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of Sizzle over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs and sear until browned on both sides, about 5-7 minutes per side.


Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside. In the same skillet, add the remaining tbsp of Sizzle and add the onion and garlic. Cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes, stirring often.


Add the diced tomatoes, chipotle peppers, and the Siete Chorizo Seasoning. Stir to combine.


Return the chicken to the skillet and coat with the tomato mixture. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.


Once the chicken is cooked, shred it using two forks.


To assemble the tacos, warm the corn tortillas and fill them with shredded chicken tinga. Top with diced avocado, crumbled queso fresco, chopped cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice.
