Chicken Enchilada Tacos are the answer to all your dinner needs. This will also make all the “meat and cheese only” type of people super happy.
How to Make Chicken Enchilada Tacos with Shredded Chicken
For the meat, you can use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store or leftover baked chicken either white or dark meat, completely up to you. I like a mixture of both.
To save on time I usually opt for the rotisserie option, it yields about 4 cups of shredded chicken which is perfect for this recipe. If you are doing the leftover route, that’s about 2-3 large chicken breasts.
Next, heat the chicken and enchilada sauce in a skillet, stir in some shredded cheese and BAM! Just like that, you’re ready to serve!
Quick and Easy Chicken Enchilada Taco Recipe
It’d be a good idea to warm the tortilla and assemble the rest of the taco part while the chicken heats up. Maybe do a happy dance while you’re at it, after all, we just pulled dinner off in less than 20 minutes, 10 if you shredded the chicken ahead of time.
I’m going to go ahead and say this will be your new way to serve enchiladas, I know it’s mine. Grab the recipe from the Taco Tuesday Cookbook, then come back and tell me how much ya loved them!
