What is the origin of a Mexican dish called Tinga or Tostadas de Tinga?

Origin uncertain. A great appetizer at all times and a most

popular treat in Mexico's Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Tinga is made

with shredded chicken and onions simmered in a thick chipotle sauce

served on crunchy tostadas (toasts.) It can be prepared with

shredded beef or pork instead. Please note that when you add some

cotija (crumbly Mexican white cheese), cilantro, avocado and a

squirt of lime, you've not only created a delectable dish, but

you've also paid homage to the colors of the Mexican flag. Hope

this helps!
