READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by lazyme

Here's a recipe that makes a nice presentation for a quick Mexican flavored chicken salad. Please note that the first ingredient should read 1 package Soft Taco Dinner, but I couldn't sneak that one through Zaar, lol.

Everyone enjoyed these tonight. I also had a little difficulty forming the cups and had to lightly fry the corn tortillas first to make them pliable, but they tasted great in the end. I did not buy a boxed dinner, but rather had all the ingredients fresh in the house and used it with chicken breasts cooked with Recipe #166030 for seasoning along with the peppers, onions, water, oil and added about 1/2 cup white wine to the chicken as it simmered. Ultimately shredded the chicken - all was delicious!! Thanks for a fun recipe - it's a keeper!!
