    Hey! I never noticed that you used chiles Morena. I like them too. =) But chipotle is not jalapeño.

    The sauce to chicken ratio was very high. Tinga is not supposed to be saucy. You also forgot to add oregano and onions; lots and lots of onions.

    From a mexican fan, if you put some more not diced but cut like in half rings of onion, diced carrots and some cabbage it's way better, well that's how my mom used to do it, love from México!!!

    This works well with pork too. I would have never thought of "transferring the chicken broth to a cardboard box to make handling easier". I'm going to have to try that! Grate idea!

    I don't know where I can source some of the Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in Australia. Could you please put a picture of the can or jar so I can see the brand please.

  • TheYoyozo
    TheYoyozo 4 months ago

    I made this and it is very good. The reality though is that you could use battery acid to poach the thighs and it wouldn’t matter since chipotle chilies in adobo sauce absolutely crushes whatever else gets thrown in the pot. So relax, enjoy and don’t worry about screwing up this recipe.

    This looks great! I might make it myself this week (though I will reduce the chipotle peppers maybe mix them with peppers that have some sort of homemade sweetness I would add to them because my family doesn't like stuff that's too spicy!).

    Hi Chef John! I just made this recipe after searching your channel for chicken recipes. Instead of just thighs, I used a whole chicken and skipped the blending step since my crushed tomatoes and chipotle sauce were conveniently already smooth. I also added a beef cube instead of chicken because I didn't have any on hand but I still wanted that extra savoury flavour. My family loves it! We even have leftovers to enjoy for tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe~

    That can of chipotle chiles are from the Morena. So good. Sorry Chef John, had to give a shout out to the Morena. 😁 they make the best Chile chipotles and Jalapeños too.

    If you really want to kick it into high gear you begin by dousing your chicken with chili pepper and grilling or broiling it first.

    How come no one comments on the annoying way he speaks. It's almost every sentence he says is a rhetorical question... but it's not. Driving me nuts. Makes the video unwatchable.

    is there a reason why we should add the extra water and stock in the beginning if we are going to evaporate it anyway. Can we just use less liquid upfront?

    Could you use bone-in chicken thighs, since you're straining thee liquid anyway? I figure the bones will add extra flavor if so.

  • Ezra

    I made this and followed the recipe to a T, except I did not blend the chipotles (didn't have the equipment) but chopped them finely. This dish was VOLCANICALLY hot (and I am a regular hot pepper eater) at first taste. Interestingly after a few days in the fridge it mellowed out and was delicious with some sour cream and cilantro :)
