Mealthy Tip

Optional toppings: flour or corn tortillas, cubed avocado, pickled red onions, queso fresco, cilantro, hot sauce

For a healthier lunch or dinner, serve the chicken tinga on top of a salad. I like a mix of shredded cabbage and kale lightly dressed with lime juice, olive oil and salt. Top with crumbled cotija cheese or queso fresco, thinly sliced radishes, and toasted pumpkin seeds.

This was delicious! I had never thought of making these in the slow cooker, clever idea. These Tinga tacos are a great choice for a hot day (you can throw the slow cooker outside!). These are so yummy topped with some greek yogurt rather than sour cream.

I like a lot of heat and these had a nice flavor on their own, but not as spicy as I like. I added several shakes of Cholula.
