This spicy dish of shredded chicken cooked in a rich chipotle chilli and tomato salsa from Puebla in central Mexico is bound to become a family favourite. Poaching the chicken in the sauce allows it to become deliciously tender and gives the dish a fantastic depth of flavour.

It's great to hear that this one went down a treat with everyone - happy spicing!

A fabulous Mexican feast! We're so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed all of these dishes - ordering refills means you're officially on your way to becoming a Taco Legend!
