Recipe by BecR2400

Tender diced pork with chipotle chiles, onion, tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini and Mexican Queso Fresco (a mild white cheese) make a wonderful "tinga" filling for these soft Tex-Mex-style tacos. Very easy recipe, and low-cal to boot! From Ladies Home Journal. Note: If you can't find Queso Fresco cheese, Monterey Jack or a mild feta will do.
