Queso Chicken Tacos
Updated: Aug 24
Here's an idea for a different way to use queso and a quick cheesy taco idea!
Also as I mentioned before, here's a tip:
Tip: If you make a bunch of tacos and don't finish them or want to meal prep, you can freeze them. To reheat, you can microwave 3 frozen tacos for about 2 minutes or 2 min. 30 seconds. Microwave times may vary, but you can microwave them right from when they are frozen; you don't need to defrost them. It may be more of an enchilada / nachos then -- eat with fork & spoon, but it still tastes good. :)
What I used:
- Old El Paso Taco Shells
- Valley Fresh chicken
- Tostitos Queso
- Mozzarella Cheese (or you can use a mexican blend)
You can add whatever toppings you want.
Steps / Instructions:
1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
-- I think when you bake everything together for a few minutes -- so the taco shells crisp up and the queso gets more gooey & the cheese melts; it tastes really good! You can do this in a toaster oven too. :)
2.) Mix queso with chicken.
3.) Add queso chicken to taco shells and top with mozzarella cheese.
4.) Bake for about 5 minutes or until cheese is nice and melt-y.
Look there's also a nice crispy brown queso part too. Yum! If it's too messy to eat with your hands, you can use silverware.
