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.
Chicken tacos are always a hit, but wouldn’t it be cool to have something that helps enhance the rich texture?
This recipe does it, as it offers a rich, creamy taste from the cream cheese in this, but also the amazing, savory taste of a taco.
Corn tortillas are the best for this one, and you can also bake these too. You want to make sure the filling is thick with this, and that the chicken is properly combined.
