Smoky Tinga Tacos

Proudly Wisconsin Cheese

featuring The Rattlesnake

Yield: 15 tacos



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the poblano and bell peppers in half and place them in a roasting pan, skin side up. Lightly oil the top of the peppers and roast them for approximately 30 minutes or until the skins begin to blacken. When the peppers are roasted, peel and slice them into 1/2 strips.

Meanwhile, in a large, heavy skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium- high heat. Add the chicken strips and saute about 10 minutes until the chicken is just barely cooked through.

Add the roasted peppers, sliced onion, minced garlic, and sliced sausage to the skillet and saute about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Decrease the heat to medium-low. Add the oregano, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, diced tomatoes, and chicken broth to the pot, mixing well. Simmer the tinga mixture about 45 minutes until almost all of the liquid has cooked down.

To assemble the tacos, place a generous amount of the shredded iceberg lettuce in the bottom of each crispy taco shell, or as the first layer on a corn tortilla. Sprinkle a layer of The Rattlesnake over the lettuce, adjusting the amount of cheese for the amount of spicy heat desired. Finish by adding the chicken tinga mixture, and garnish with a bit more of the shredded lettuce and The Rattlesnake.

Serve with ice cold cervezas.
