    itsnevrenough's Note:

    The heat can be adjusted to your own taste by adding or cutting down on the chipotle peppers. It works well for a buffet, and is even more flavorful the next day.

      It's recipes like this one that make me realize how much I've been missing by not trying more new dishes YEARS AGO! Except for two things, I followed the recipe down the line ~ however, I doubled the garlic & used only 3 chipotle chilies! Still, I think I got a flavor intensity that suited me! Very, very tasty, & yet another direction in which to take chicken breasts! Many thanks for posting this recipe!

      This is a great recipe for chicken tinga! I've made it many times and it always disappears fast. Especially good topped with avocado and queso fresco. Tastes even better the next day. I usually add a little brown sugar while cooking for just a hint of sweetness.

      I used some left over roasted chicken and just eye-balled the ingredients. You would never guess it was leftovers and I'll be sure to remember this when I need to get dinner on the table fast!
