Tinga de Pollo Tacos are the answer to shake up your next Taco Tuesday. Why just stick to ground beef when there are so many other tasty, creative options to eat in a taco? Tinga de Pollo literally translates to shredded or torn chicken. This is an easy weeknight meal that comes together with some help from your slow cooker…dinner is done!
My dad used to make this salsa for almost every family get together or special occasion. Although closely adapted from one of Tyler Florence’s salsa recipes, he put a few touches of his own on it over the years. Tyler Florence was his favorite celebrity chef to watch on Food Network. We spent hours watching Tyler’s Ultimate together when he would visit. He used to take the printed, folded up recipe back and for the with him to New Zealand to make for his friends there as well…and so, it became “Grandad’s Salsa”.
