Tinga Poblana

Tinga Poblana comes from the queen city of Puebla, Mexico. Tinga means “messy stew.”

Pork is shredded and stewed in a concoction of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, tomatoes, garlic, onions, potatoes, and chorizo. The dish is commonly served on tortillas or tostadas garnished with slices of avocado and queso fresco.

It is a wonderfully flavored dish with just the right amount of kick from the chipotles. You could also use shredded chicken thighs or beef chuck as a substitute for pork but the pork-chorizo-potato-tomato combination makes tinga very appealing. The avocado garnish provides a nice creamy touch.
