Cream Cheese Chicken Tacos

by Laura

Corn tortillas are my favorite. I love the flavor you get from them. These cream cheese chicken tacos are made with corn tortillas and baked until crispy.

The filling is nice and thick. Cooked chicken is mixed with cream cheese, galic, green onion, cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper.  Then the tortillas are warmed in a skillet with a little oil. So, when you bake them in the oven those oiled tortillas get nice and crispy.

After baking you caould add in some toppings. Shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes whould be a nice addition. However, these are gereat just as is straight from the oven.
