Chicken tinga is one of those dishes you get used to seeing all over the place when you live in Southern California. However when casually mentioned to New Englander friends looking for an easy, chicken taco filling not so common in those parts. Basicially, chicken tinga is a shredded chicken dish made with onions, tomatoes, garlic, and usually a couple of chipotle peppers. It is found stuffed inside of all types of tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and numerous other delicious Mexican dishes. Tinga gives the dishes a little extra kick and is a great substitute for plain shredded chicken. I like to make up a big batch to eat all week for lunches.
