Servings: 12 tostadas
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 large sweet onion diced
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 - 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce chopped
- 15 ounce fire roasted diced tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

To make your Chicken Tinga Tostadas, start by heating olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet and then adding the chopped onion. Stir and cook for 3 - 4 minutes and then add in your diced garlic. Cook for another minute and then add in your chopped / diced chipotle peppers in adobe sauce. Stir to combine and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Stir in the diced tomatoes and spices and cook for 5 minutes. At this point, you can either continue to cook it as it is or you can move the mixture to a small food processer or a blender and blend until smooth. Return the sauce to the skillet, add in your shredded chicken, stir to combine and continue to cook over medium heat for 10 - 15 minutes.
While your Chicken Tinga sauce is cooking, heat a can of refried bean up in a small pot, warm your tostada in a 250 degree oven and prepare your garnishes. Once your Chicken Tinga is done, take a spoonfull of refried beans and lightly smear it on a tostada. Top the beans with an even layer of Chicken Tinga and then garnish and serve.
