SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TINGA
Chicken Tinga makes the most delicious shredded chicken tacos! Flavorful, tender, juicy and smoky! Cooking them is a breeze in your slow cooker.
Tinga means torn or shredded pieces of meat. In the case of Tinga de Pollo or chicken tinga, it means shredded or torn chicken.
What does Tinga mean?
One of the things I love about this dish is it uses mostly staple ingredients and things that are not hard to find.
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be substituted for chicken thighs. I recommend using the Cotija cheese for more of an authentic flavor, but any cheese is fine.
