Author's Notes

For TortillaLand® Fresh Ready to Cook Tortillas:

1. Preheat a non-stick pan to medium heat (440ºF). No butter or oil required.

2. Place tortilla in a pan and cook for 30 seconds until slightly golden and tortilla begins to puff.

3. Turn tortillas over, and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Cook thoroughly before eating. Caution: tortilla will be hot. Enjoy!

Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Do not mix cooked and uncooked tortillas. Try cooking the tortillas on the grill or BBQ - grill tortillas until they have grill marks on both sides.

Step 1
Place Tyson® Whole Chicken (1) in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, turn off the heat, cover the pot and let it sit for 25 minutes.
Step 2
Slice the White Onion (1) . You can also dice some of the onion for serving.
Step 3
In a large sauté pan or pot, add the Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) and place over medium heat. Add the sliced onion to the pan with a pinch of Kosher Salt (to taste) and sauté over medium heat until translucent or lightly brown, taking around about 5 minutes.
Step 4
Add Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (1 can) including 2-3 of the chilies. Stir until the onions are nicely coated in the sauce.
Step 5
Add the Canned Crushed Tomatoes (1 1/2 cups) , Chicken Stock (2 cups) and a pinch of salt.
Step 6
When the chicken is done, transfer it to a large bowl or a colander placed in the sink to cool. Return the pot with the cooking liquid to the stove.
Step 7
Let the sauce simmer over low heat while you pull the chicken meat from the skin and bones. Shred the meat and add to the sauce.
Step 8
Bring the pan with the chicken to a simmer and let cook for 15 minutes over low heat. Add Fresh Cilantro (1 bunch) to the pot and stir to incorporate. Taste mixture, add more salt if necessary.
Step 9
Serve with heated TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas (to taste) , Cheese (to taste) , wedges of Limes (to taste) , chopped onion, and Sour Cream (to taste) on the side.
