Food inspiration is everywhere, especially when you get invited to other people’s houses.
Look around…they do things differently than you, they have different stuff in the pantry, the refrigerator, on the buffet at their parties. Take note and ask questions!
Case in point: A visit to the home of my husband’s colleague for a So Cal summer party gave me my latest favorite chicken recipe – Chicken Tinga, which is a kind of stewed chicken that is spicy from chipotle, tangy from onion and garlic, and sweet from tomatoes. I fell in love with it and spooned in onto tortillas for a little taco. I might have had 3 or 4, but the hostess was kind enough not to be counting.
I sampled all of the various offerings made by local Oxnard, Calif. mom-and-daughter caterers Adela Morales and Jennifer Vazquez, and found an immediate favorite among all the delicious dishes.
Chicken Tinga, where have you been all my life?
I asked for the recipe and they were kind enough to share their method with me. I took a few liberties in adapting their method to my own, making it with my beloved chicken thighs instead of chicken breast, and adding a few other tweaks.
One of the best things about Chicken Tinga, besides the flavor, is it’s made simply, with real, unprocessed ingredients. It’s versatile and healthy, and fits right in to lots of eating plans.
