Goya Shredded Chicken Tacos
For an easy, delicious taco night, try these Shredded Chicken Tacos. The chicken filling, also known as Tinga de Pollo in Mexico - especially the Puebla region - is made by slowly cooking chicken breasts in a seasoned tomato-and-chile-sauce to make them super tender and extra tasty. Wrap the chicken tinga filling in warm corn tortillas and sprinkle on your favorite toppings for an easy, fun taco night.
  1. In medium bowl, mix together tomato sauce, vinegar, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and sugar. Season with Adobo; set aside.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with Adobo. Cook chicken, turning once, until light golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Add reserved tomato sauce mixture to pan; bring to a boil (be careful, the tomato sauce can splatter). Lower heat to medium low. Simmer, covered, flipping once, until chicken is cooked through (thermometer will register 165°F when inserted into thickest part of breast), about 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer chicken to cutting board; reserve sauce in pan. Remove and discard bones and skin. Using two forks, shred chicken breast. Transfer chicken to skillet with sauce, mixing to combine; continue to cook until sauce reduces and blends into chicken, and mixture begins to caramelize, about 10 minutes more.
  4. To serve, spoon shredded chicken onto tortillas. Garnish with desired toppings.

Question- Is there a store in SA that carries all the Goya products? My HEB has a small section of Goya but there are so many other Goya products used in the menus than are available where I shop. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I hear you! I’m always asking my HEB to bring in the large Goya Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I’ve also seen a lot of their products in Target…you might check there. Every product I’ve tried, I’ve loved. They do a delicious salsa called Salsa Taquera…love it!!

Hi Tanji,
I have a Personal Chef Service operating in Fort Bend County! I’ve watched a couple of ur episodes on tv and luv the variety of foods shown. Please add me to ur newsletter subscriptions.

I shop at two of the new H-E-B stores in my area and both carry most of the Goya products shown in ur shows! Good job!
Chef Jon
