Torchy’s Taco’s runs with a motto of “Damn Good.” Well, I finally got around to trying them out. Their motto lives up to it’s name. I had a great experience with service and the quality of food. If you love a BIG fat taco like me, then you got to try em’! Oh, and the chorizo queso is legit. Pass the chips!

Pollo De Tinga Tostadas

2014 Albert Moyer, Jr.

Recipe:

Pre-made tostada shells

Roast one whole chicken with Oregano, Cumin, and Salt Rub

Once chicken is done and cools, peel all meat from chicken and reserve.

Blend in a blender, three tomatoes, one can tomato sauce, and four chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

Add about two tablespoons brown sugar, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to sauce as it blends.

In a skillet, saute one chopped onion for five minutes in about four tablespoons of Olive oil.

Add the roasted chicken meat, along with the sauce. Blend and warm.

To build tostada, add some fresh mixed greens on top of shell, and then about 1/2 cup of Tinga chicken.

Sprinkle with some grated fresh Mexican white cheese and chopped fresh cilantro.

Finally, pour a little Mexican crema over the top from side to side.

Enjoy!

This will serve at least eight people.

I am reflecting on how much I love Casa Rio Mexican Restaurant in San Antonio,Texas. For over 25 years, I have been enjoying the Casa Rio El Rio Dinner. The dinner starts off with nachos and guacamole salad. I love the cheese on the nachos, and the little bit of hot sauce that tops the guacamole off. It is a nice added touch that makes the dinner special to me. The top shelf margaritas are also an added touch that makes one smile and easily take in the people watching along the river.

Next comes the hot plate. The hot plate consists of a well-seasoned tamale, a big tasty taco, a cheese enchilada oozing with the best sauce and cheese, chile con carne that is so flavorful, and Mexican rice and beans.

I think the photos speak volumes, but you will never know until you give it a try. This is Tex-Mex at it’s best!
