Does anyone else suffer from FONEF (fear of not enough food)? If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably have leftovers for days after Thanksgiving. Well, here’s a spin on my classic chicken tinga recipe that will allow you to use up all of that leftover turkey.
I love the subtle heat and smokiness the chipotles infuse into the turkey, contrasted by all of the fresh garnishes.

4 cups chicken broth
2 large onions cut into fourths
4 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (use 6 if you like extra spice)
4 large tomatoes cut into fourths
4-5 cups shredded turkey
Salt (to taste)
- Blend 2 cups of chicken broth with onions, chipotle chiles, and tomatoes until pureed. Transfer mixture to a large, deep pan.
- Add shredded turkey and mix well. Pour in additional 2 cup chicken broth. Cover and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes on low heat.
- Serve on tostadas with shredded cabbage, sliced radishes, pickled red onions, salsa, and crema, if desired.
