Hey all you fabuloso cooks out there -

When I was a little girl we lived in a primarily hispanic neighborhood in Dallas, TX.
We spent a lot of time with our neighbors and one of the ladies used to make a boiled chicken, shred it and serve it w/homemade warm tortillas and mexican rice....I don't know HOW she did it or have any idea for a recipe she could have used.  Could anyone help me out here?  I want to make that food!!  I'm having such a craving for it and the local mexican restaurant just won't cut it. Smiley
Thanks!!!

hard question to answer ... most neighborshoods and many familys hve there own veriations.
My Gram makes hers by gently boiling chiken in water with garlic, oregano and cumin.
She lets it cool a little, shreds meat mixes with mole sauce or enchilata sauce or just a little oil and vin.
then serves with tortillas and rice.  or rice and beans.

I havent quite mastered the shredded chicken thing yet, but i would basically put the chicken in a tomato diluted with water mix and add garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, cumin, paprika, red chile powder, and a LITTLE bit of hot sauce and let it slow cook and reduce.

But like Leesa said, every family makes their meals slightly different so you might just have to try several different recipes to figure out what makes the one u want taste the way it used to.

Thanks Ya'll!!  Smiley  I asked my mom again to please try to remember - and she said that she forgot that Martha actually grilled the chicken first and then they deboned it and served it w/homemade tortillas and homemade refried beans. YUMMMM....I made tortillas for the 1st time in over 5 yrs yesterday and they went over REALLY well w/my "famous taco stuff" last night at church!  Smiley  Now I HAVE to try doing the chicken thing....I wonder if it would taste the same grilled on a george foreman grill?.....

It'd be healthier on a george forman but like a lot of things, the smoke on the grill helps give it flavor.
I'm glad you remembered how to do it though! Grin

Ok today we had some left over roasted chicken we bought from a grocery store. So I shredded the chicken into bits, brought 1 small can of tomato sauce + 1/2 that same can full of water + cumin + tiny bit of oregano + about half a small white onion diced + garlic powder + paprika + california red chili powder + a few dabs of chalula hotsauce to a boil. Then added the chicken, lowered the fire and let it simmer for about 20 minutes stirring occasionally. I served it on a flour tortilla topped with home made pico de gallo salsa and a little bit of cheese. It was fantastic! HIGHLY recommend trying it!
