Just because you can only watch the Seattle Mariners opening day from the comfort of your couch doesn’t mean that you can’t create these T-Mobile Park menu favorites at home. On the Mariners YouTube Channel two talented chefs will host a video cooking demonstration. Are you ready to get cooking?

At noon on Friday, July 31, ahead of the Seattle Mariners opening day game, Centerplate’s T-Mobile Park Executive Chef Taylor Park and Seattle restaurateur Ethan Stowell will be sharing some cooking tips, tricks and favorite game day recipes. Although you might not hear the roar of the crowd while you enjoy these game day favorites, they will bring a taste of the ballpark to your kitchen.

Planned for the cooking demonstration are three T-Mobile Park favorites. The items include: Hempler’s sausage sandwich, a new Marco Pollo chicken tinga sandwich, and specialty cocktails like the Magenta Mojo. Many people consider T-Mobile Park one of the best dining experiences and these menu items are a reason why.

The new menu item, the Marco Pollo chicken tinga sandwich is quite exciting. Named after the Mariners Opening Day Starting Pitcher Marco Gonzales, this menu item brings the heat. While this menu item looks to be a big bite, it will definitely score with fans.

Here’s how to make the Marco Pollo chicken tinga sandwich from the T-Mobile Park menu.


  • 6 oz Chicken Tinga
  • 2 oz Black Beans
  • 1 oz Pickled Jalapeno
  • 1 oz Lettuce, Shredded
  • 4 oz Pico de Gallo
  • 1 oz Avocado Pulp
  • 1 oz Sour Cream
  • 2 oz Roasted Corn
  • 1 torta bun


    1. Heat up chicken tinga over stove top or in oven (until cooked or internal temperature of 165 is reached).
    2. Combine black beans with pickled jalapeno in pan and bring to a simmer
    3. Heat up corn in oven until hot and lightly brown
    4. Toast bread
    5. Once meat and beans are hot, spread avocado puree on top portion of the sandwich (go heavy on the spread) and add the sour cream to the bottom part of the sandwich
    6. Start by placing the hot beans on the bottom of the bread followed by the corn and chicken
    7. Top with shredded lettuce, close and serve

If you are not familiar, chicken tinga is basically shredded chicken in a sauce with tomatoes, sliced onions, and chipotle chilis in adobo. The chicken is bold but not overly spicy.

Also, a key to this recipe is building the sandwich. You do need to keep the avocado and sour cream separate otherwise the flavors become muddled. Additionally, try to keep all the ingredients spread evenly to keep the sandwich intact as you eat it.
