Tinga de Puerco

  • 2 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1 onion minced
  • 2 oz chipotles (packed in waternot dried)
  • 2 diced tomatoes
  • 2 oz vegetable oil

Once cooled, pull the pork apart into strands with your fingers. Heat the oil in a saut pan, add garlic, then onions then the pork then the peppers and then the tomatoes. Let the meat simmer for a few minutes until the visible liquid is evaporated.

To assemble the tinga:

2 cups refried white beans (cooked with pork and made into a paste in a food processor)
shredded romaine lettuce
8 tablespoons pico di gallo*
4 oz queso blanco (cheese similar in texture to crme fraiche and in flavor to feta)

lay the tortillas out and spread each one with 1-2 T of refried beans. Then put 2 oz pulled pork (tinga) on each, then some lettuce and top with pico di gallo. Finish with a drizzle of soft queso blanco.

4 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 med red onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
