Step 1

Heat the oil in a large pan to medium heat and add the onions and jalapeno peppers. Cook them down about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook another 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the garlic becomes fragrant.

Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper, then add them to the pan. Give them a nice sear on each side, a couple minute each.

Process the tomato sauce and chipotles in adobo sauce in a food processor, then pour the mixture into the pan, covering the chicken.

Stir in the seasonings.

Step 6

Bring to a quick boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and easily pulls apart.

Step 7

Remove the chicken and shred it with a couple of forks.

Step 8

Return the chicken to the pan and simmer in the sauce another 5 minutes.

Step 9

Serve with tortillas or on torta buns and all your favorite fixings.
