Tinga Poblana is a classic pork stew from the Puebla region of Mexico.  It is simmered with tomatoes, onions, garlic, chorizo, chipotles and spices.  This version is for the slow-cooker and is used as a delicious filling for burritos, tortas, and tacos, or as a topping for tostadas.  Very little hands-on work.  Sit back and let your slow-cooker do the work and then sit down for a meal that is sure to become a family favorite.

These Tinga Poblana Tacos were also selected by Better Recipes as the winner for “Best Mexican Recipe Ever“!

It’s easy and oh so incredibly delicious!

This recipe calls for Mexican chorizo and while you can find it in your local Mexican grocery stores, for the BEST flavor I highly recommend making your own.  It’s super easy!  Check out my recipe for homemade Mexican Chorizo.

Tinga Poblana Tacos Recipe

Let’s get started!

Add the pork roast and the onion and garlic to the slow cooker.

The chorizo is the only thing you’ll need to cook separately.  The slow-cooker will do everything else for you.  Fry up the chorizo.  This will allow you to break up the lumps and it will also enhance the flavor of the spices.

Side tidbit:  If using corn tortillas for soft tacos, briefly fry them in a skillet with a little oil until until soft and bendable without breaking.  If you want tostadas, fry them until golden brown on both sides and crispy.
