Crispy Creamy Chicken Tacos

by Laura

Tacos are in our usual meal rotation, but I love to mix up the type of tacos we have. This crispy creamy chicken tacos version is made with chicken and corn tortillas.

This filling for these tacos is creamy and flavorful. It is made with cooked chicken, cream cheese, salt, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, lime juice, and milk. Then you place some of the chicken mixture onto half of each tortilla and then fold over. Once all the tortillas are filled with the creamy chicken filling, they get brushed with oil and sprinkled with a little salt. Then you bake them until crispy. I love that the shells get crispy, but not too crispy. They still have some chew to them.

This recipe makes 16 Crispy Chicken Tacos. They are a perfect filling meal or will even work as an appetizer. They are great on their own or you can serve them with something to dip them in. I like to serve them with guacamole.
