Easy Smoked Chicken Taco Recipe with a Twist

Experience the smoky, authentic flavors of Mexico with our Smoked Chicken Tinga Tacos recipe. Slow-cooked chicken blended with fire-roasted tomatoes, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and Lane's signature fiesta seasoning, all wrapped in freshly-made corn tortillas. Topped with diced red onion, crumbled queso fresco, cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime, these tacos are a fiesta for your taste buds. Whether you smoke the chicken or opt for alternative cooking methods, these tacos are sure to transport you south of the border with every savory bite. This recipe can either be done on your smoker or we have an alternative for the kitchen, as well.

History Behind Our Recipe

One thing that is great about traveling to different places is that you can immerse yourself in new cuisine and new culture. On a trip to Puerta Vallarta, I had the opportunity to have authentic Chicken Tinga Tacos made the traditional way. I watched as our host fire-roasted her tomatoes and peppers. She also made fresh corm tortillas and pressed them in a family-made press that had been passed down through generations. It was like watching her family history being pressed into each tortilla. She had already dispatched and plucked a live chicken that was simmering in a cast iron pot with some onion, garlic, and other spices I had never tasted before. All I know is that when my meal was prepared and bright to me it was some of the best tacos I’d ever eaten. This recipe brings back all of those happy moments. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
