  2. Crumple 6 sheets of foil to make 6 (3-inch) balls; place on baking sheet. Top each with 1 tortilla; spray with cooking spray. Bake 6 to 8 min. or until tortillas are golden brown. (Tortillas will drape over balls as they bake to form cups.)

  4. Fill tortilla cups with chicken mixture; top with remaining ingredients.

  • Substitute: Substitute shredded cooked turkey, pork or beef for the chicken.
  • Nutrition Bonus: The crisp baked tortillas make perfect shells for the flavourful filling in this delicious entrée.

Instead of salsa, I added chiptole sauce and onion, since that's how we eat tinga. I also grated my own Jack and cheddar cheeses because I refuse to buy pre-shredded cheese. Very, very, very quick and easy, which is exactly why I tried this idea. Sort of like a chicken taco salad.

I sauteed chopped onions and red peppers, then added the chicken to that and mixed in 1 teaspoon of cumin and chili powder, about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of parsley, 1/4 cup of tomato sauce, 1/4 cup of salsa and a cup of chicken broth. It was quite flavourful and my family really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
