A nice alternative to beef. Top it off with a bit of salsa and Olé!
- 12 taco shells
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

- 3⁄4 cup chopped onion
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Put the taco shells on a cookie sheet.
- In a skillet, combine the taco seasoning and 1 cup water.

- Place 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture in each taco shell.
- Top each with 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese, 1 tablespoon sour cream, some shredded lettuce, diced tomato, and chopped onion.

Quick and easy dinner. I do not use chicken taco seasoning instead I make home made Pico De Gallo to pile up inside them and I steam my tortillas instead of frying them and just have soft tacos instead. I always use the Mexican sour cream just because it is so creamy and tasty. I serve these with Fideo. (a Hispanic pasta side dish I'm sure you could find a recipe on here) or Spanish rice.
Loved them with the chicken!
Really enjoyed this recipe. I used Taco Seasoning Mix for the taco seasoning package and that worked very well. Other than that and decreasing it for the 2 of us, made as directed. Served this with taco sauce and an avocado salsa. Made for Gimme 5 :)
