Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • 1 crushed tomatoes can (14.5 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher or coarse sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 3 tablespoons adobo sauce from chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 5 cups chicken cooked shredded
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Tostadas to serve crisp corn tortillas
  • 1 cup Lettuce shredded
  • 2 Avocados From Mexico pitted meat scooped out and sliced

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a casserole or large heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until it becomes fragrant, less than a minute.
  2. Add the crushed tomatoes, oregano, marjoram, thyme, salt, black pepper, and adobo sauce from chipotles in adobo. Bring to a simmer, cover partially and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and darkens, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Incorporate the shredded chicken broth and the chicken broth into the sauce and toss until well mixed. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken has absorbed almost all of the sauce and is moist but not runny, about 8 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  4. Place the tostadas on a platter. Top with a generous amount of chicken tinga, a couple tablespoons shredded lettuce and 1/4 of a ripe avocado, sprinkle a bit of salt on top.
