Baked Chicken Tacos

When the lovely Katie linked up her Baked Chicken Tacos recipe a few weeks ago, I knew it was something I would definitely have to try out, and I'm so glad I did... the verdict was YUM!


Grilled chicken, diced
2 cups of salsa
4-6 tortillas or taco shells (I used tortillas)
1/2 packet of reduced sodium taco seasoning
1 jalapeno
1 cup of reduced fat shredded pepper jack cheese
1 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil
Toppings: fat free sour cream, tomato, and avocado


Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Pour olive oil into a sauce pan or large skillet and heat over medium heat
Combine chicken, salsa, taco seasoning, and jalapeno and let simmer for a few minutes
While mixture is cooking, shred cheese and dice up the tomato and avocado, set aside
Then add mixture to tortillas, top with cheese, and bake for about 10 minutes at 425 degrees
Add extra toppings before serving. I chose to serve with fat free sour cream, diced tomato, and avocado.
