Chicken Tinga with Potatoes

Serves 6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 35 minutes   Rated:

This recipe was originally created for my sell out Mexican Fiesta classes, (which are as rare as hens teeth now) and may show up as an Insider video in the future.

I love it. It is so easy, loaded with flavour and you can knock back on the heat if you have kids. It goes a really long way, so when I say serves 6, it is very dependant on what else you put with it. Add rice, add corn chips, add salsa and salad and you could feed a few more.

So add this to your menu builder, get your sombrero on, and enjoy!
