On the menu Dec 10 — Dec 16

Ever heard of tinga de pollo? It’s one of our favorite dishes at Mexican restaurants. With tender bits of shredded chicken in a fiery chipotle-tomato sauce, it’s often served over fried tostadas to contrast the saucy meat with a satisfying crunch. Here, Chef Taylor uses a simple technique for baking the corn tortillas with just a brush of olive oil to get all of the crispy texture without the effort and mess. The finished tostadas are sprinkled with crumbles of Cotija cheese and served with a simple slaw of cabbage and carrot in a creamy lime dressing.
