This tasty Grandma's Tinga recipe has its roots in Mexico. Tinga is the Spanish word for "stew." This quick-to-make stew made with shrimp, onions and tomatoes gets an extra flavor boost from chocolate and a chipotle chile. Great for all occasions and works well as a buffet item, too. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve hot with toasted bread.
