We had some awesome taquitos today for lunch. Charles poached the chicken in a spicy tomato mix for a great flavor.
- 3-4 chicken breast
- 1 can whole tomatoes – break or cut apart
- 2 Tbs chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 1 Tbs cumin
- 1 Tbs mexican oregano
- 2 bay leaves
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 Tbs fresh cilantro
Bring everything except the cilantro to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes over low heat until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and set aside. Turn heat up on the sauce and cook until thickened about 10 minutes. Remove bay leaves. Shred chicken and stir into sauce add cilantro just before serving.
We then took our meat and rolled it up in small flour tortilla shells along with some cheddar cheese and fried in about 1/2 inch of oil over medium high heat for about 4 minutes flipping once until crispy. The meat would be delicious as soft tacos or fajita too so adjust the recipe to your liking!
