Chicken Tinga (Tinga de Pollo)
This is a traditional Mexican dish that is easy to make, taste delicious, and can be frozen for up to a month. Great on tostadas with Queso Fresco and Chipotle salsa (see my Chipotle-Tomatillo Salsa recipe). Also great in a quesadilla or live on the edge and whip up a batch of Mexican Chicken Lasagna
