  Serve this as a stew with steamed white or brown rice. Accompany with
  avocado and onion slices. Tinga is also good served in warmed,
  scooped out French rolls or bolillos (Mexican rolls). You can add
  avocado slices, onion and a mild white cheese such as Jack to the
  sandwich. With a glass of icy beer and a salad, you have everything
  you need.
  Put tomatoes on a jelly-roll pan and place about 8 inch inches under a
  preheated broiler. Broil until tomato skins turn brownish, about 10
  minutes. Peel, cut in half horizontally and squeeze out seeds. Place
  tomatoes in a food processor along with garlic and chipotle chiles.
  Chop into a coarse puree.
  Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add onions and saute for 5 minutes until
  softened. Remove and set aside Using the same skillet, fry the chorizo
  until well cooked. If the sausage is fatty, drain on paper towels and
  wipe out skillet. Return the sausage and onion to skillet and add the
  tomato-chipotle mixture along with vinegar, sugar, salt, adobo juice
  and spices. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  Add the shredded pork or chicken, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes to blend
  flavors. If the mixture seems dry, add 1/2 cup broth or water.
  To Serve: Serve as a spicy stew with steamed rice. Or use as a
  filling for Mexican bolillos: Cut rolls in half and pull out some of
  the soft crumbs. Pile onion rings and avocado slices into the halves,
  then spoon on the tinga.
  Note: Chipotles are sold in 8-ounce cans labeled "chipotles
  adobados." They are found in Mexican grocery stores and in the ethnic
  sections of some supermarkets.
