Baked Chicken Tacos

 

I can't believe I haven't shared my baked chicken taco recipe here before - I think know it's my husbands all time favorite.  We've had it at least once a month for the past two years and I always make a double batch because the leftovers may be even better than fresh out of the oven.  It's delicious and easy but best of all?  It's a perfect weeknight dinner because it's a 30 minute meal!

Shopping List
1 lb cooked and shredded chicken (I use shredded rotisserie chicken)
6 Stand and Stuff taco shells
2 cups salsa - mild/medium/hot, whatever your heart desires
1 package taco seasoning
1 jalapeno (remove the seeds for less heat)
1/2 onion
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1 tbsp olive oil

 Preparation
1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

2. In a large saucepan over medium-high, heat olive oil. Combine chicken, salsa, taco seasoning, jalapeno, onion in the saucepan and reduce heat to a simmer for 5 minutes.

3. While chicken mixture is cooking, lightly grease an 8 x 8 baking dish and line your shells in the dish.

4. Once chicken mixture is done, evenly divide between your 6 taco shells.  Top with cheese and bake for 10 minutes.

I like to serve these babies with mexican rice and a side of avocado - enjoy!  What's your families favorite go to recipe?
