    Directions

    1. Add tomatoes, garlic cloves, chipotle chiles, adobo sauce, a quarter of the sliced onions, and 1/2 cup water to a blender container. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
    2. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add remaining onion strips, reduce heat to low, and sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes.
    3. Strain the tomato mixture from the blender into the sautéed onions. Stir in 1/2 cup water, oregano, and chicken bouillon. Add more water in 1/4 cup increments if you prefer your mixture with more liquid. Add shredded chicken; stir, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
    4. Top tortillas with chicken tinga. Garnish with cabbage, cilantro, cheese and a squeeze of lime juice.

    Tasted great and pretty easy! Only complaint was that the chicken and sauce was pretty watery but that won’t stop me from making them again 😁
