Easy, tasty and surprisingly filling! This was a great Friday night dinner to relax with; I used one chicken breast and corn tortillas as that's what I had on hand. Even after emptying half a taco seasoning sachet in, they weren't remotely spicy, so I recommend using hot salsa if you like your dinners warm! This would be very kid friendly, don't know anyone who wouldn't enjoy it - thanks for posting!

I had some leftover chicken and everything else on hand for this PAC 06 recipe. I love the cream cheese in this it makes it so creamy. I used medium picante sauce. Wonderful recipe thanks Kay :)
