Gut Soothing Chicken Tinga

Adding simple tweaks to common recipes can make all the difference in the world. Try incorporating more gut friendly foods such as cotija cheese to your Chicken Tinga instead of sour cream. Many people have an easier time digesting aged dairy products over traditional dairy products. The healthy bacteria in cotija cheese can help soothe the gut instead of inflame it like many dairy products often do. Give it a try and see if your digestion issues improve.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 1 yellow onion
  • One 28-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • One 12-ounce can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • Salt to taste

Toppings:

  • Cilantro
  • Cotija cheese
  • Lime
  • Scallions
  • Pickled onions (any fermented veggies work great)

Directions:

Step 1: Slice onions and add to a pot and cook until translucent.

Step 2: Add fire roasted tomatoes, chipotle peppers and chicken broth to the pot. Cook 5 minutes until ingredients marry other.

Step 3: Add chicken to the pot and mix well. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Add pickled veggies for extra gut health benefits.
