Ingredients: (recipe adapted from page 160 of Muy Bueno)
1 store-bought rotisserie chicken, shredded
1/2 can of chipotles and adobo sauce (I used half of a 7 oz can)
1 14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 small onion, sliced thinly
1 teaspoon salt
Tortillas to serve
1. Use a food processor or blender to combine the chipotles, tomatoes (undrained), and garlic. Blend until smooth. If the mixture is thick you can add chicken broth or water but I didn’t find it necessary.
2. Add a touch of oil to a saucepan and cook the onions for a few minutes before adding the chicken to the pot. Pour the blended sauce over the shredded chicken and onions. Bring to a boil then let simmer gently for 20-30 minutes.
3. Serve with warmed tortillas. Top with cheese or serve with avocados, lettuce and/or salsa.
