Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Place 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 tablespoon) 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 cup), Chicken Stock (2 cup) 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 Flour Tortilla (to taste), Cheese (to taste), wedges of Lime (to taste), chopped onion, and Sour Cream (to taste) on the side.
