Ingredients

    Mexican Tinga

    1T Olove oil
    1 large onion ( cut into rings)
    1 15 oz. can stewed tomato's
    1 7 oz. can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamin
    2 cubes Knorr chicken boullion
    Crisp Iceberg lettuce leaves
    Light sour cream


Directions

Sautee onions in oil on med heat just to "sweat" them, about 5-6 min. In a blender or food processor, add tomatoes, 2 Knorr chicken boullion cubes, 1-2 chipotle peppers (Very Hot) a little of the adobo sauce and cinnamin. Blend together. Place into a slow cooker. Add onions and chicken. Cook on high for 6-7 hours. Remove chicken breast, shred them using 2 forks. Place back into slow cooker and mix. Serve on iceberg lettuce leaves with a dollup of low fat sour cream. It's a little messy but SO delicious!

*Serving size
2 lettuce leaves filled with Tinga with 2 Tbsp light sour cream
* Makes about 6 servings

* I use 2 chipotle peppers because I love spicy food. You may want to try it with just one if you are not sure.

* You can also boil the chicken breast before hand, shred it and add to mixture before cooking. I just like to cook the chicken with the mixture for more flavor.
