Ingredients

  • 10 stand and stuff hard taco shells regular hard shells will work, too
  • 2 cups cups, cooked, shredded chicken I used the cooked, shredded rotisserie chicken that you can find near the deli section of your grocery store
  • 1 envelope (1 ounce) taco seasoning any kind
  • 1 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa Medium
  • cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Toppings: lettuce, diced tomato, black olives, sour cream, guacamole, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine shredded chicken, taco seasoning, and Pace® Chunky Salsa Medium. Stir well. **See note below**
  • Spoon about 3 tablespoons of chicken mixture onto the bottom of each taco shell. Top with shredded cheese.
  • Place shells into prepared dish and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Notes

Make sure that the chicken, taco seasoning, and salsa is mixed well and not too liquidy, otherwise it will make the taco shells soggy.
