Servings: 4
Tomato Sauce
2 (8 ounce) cans
White Distilled Vinegar
2 tsp.
Minced Garlic
 2 tsp.
Ancho chile powder
3 1/2 tsp.
Ground Cumin
1 tsp.
Oregano Leaf
2 tsp.
1/2 tsp.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp.
Chicken breasts, bone-in, skin-on
2 pounds
Adobo with Pepper 
 to taste
Corn Tortillas, warmed
1 (10 ounce) package
White onion, chopped
1/4 cup finely
Lime, cut into wedges
Fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp.
Hot Sauce 
to taste
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together tomato sauce, vinegar, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and sugar. Season with Adobo.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken breasts with Adobo. Cook chicken, flipping once, until light golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Pour tomato sauce mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and simmer until cooked through, flipping once, about 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer chicken to cutting board; leave the sauce in the pan. Take out and discard bones and skin. Using two knives, shred chicken. Place chicken back to skillet with sauce, mix well; continue to cook until sauce reduces and blends into the chicken, and mixture begins to caramelize, about 10 minutes more.
  4. Place chicken mixture in a serving bowl. Spoon it into warmed tortillas. Decorate with lettuce, tomatoes, avocados and/or onions, if desired. For a spicy touch, sprinkle with hot sauce, if desired.
