Wash produce before use
Prep and cook the beans and your protein
- Rinse the black beans.
- Chicken, steak, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
- Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt.
- Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; crumble or cut into ½-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
- Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the tinga sauce and beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until your protein is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes for regular shrimp; 3 to 5 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 5 to 6 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. While your protein is cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the toppings; heat the tortillas
- In a small bowl, season the pico de gallo to taste with salt and pepper.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
- Remove 6  tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the 6  tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.
Set out the tortillas, your protein, pico de gallo, and cilantro. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
