Peapod Meal Kit: Chicken Tinga Tacos by Chef Jon Zaragoza



Prep time: 5 minutes. Cook time: 25 minutes. Serves: 6. 1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat, add the onion and cook until caramelized and golden brown, about 12 minutes. Tip: Don't rush this step, as the purpose is to draw out the sweetness of the onions. Adding a tablespoon of water towards the end will help loosen the flavorful brown bits formed in the pan once the onions have caramelized. 2. Add garlic, canned tomatoes, and chipotle chillies and simmer for another 6 minutes. Add shredded chicken into the simmering sauce and cook until heated through. Salt to taste. 3. To warm the tortillas: Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add a very small amount of oil. Cook 1-2 tortillas in the hot pan for 15 seconds per side until softened. Wrap in foil to keep warm. Serve family style: top with dollop of sour cream, slice of avocado, chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Tip: Tortillas can be wrapped tightly in foil and placed in a 250°F oven for 2-30 minutes.
