A delicious combination of tacos and enchiladas, for the most simplified of Mexican dinners without all the fuss. Using a store-bought rotisserie chicken, simply shred apart (no raw meat to cook!) combined with canned enchilada sauce, in a casserole dish lined with taco shells. Topped off with shredded cheese, and baked in the oven to completion! Top with garnishes like green onions and sour cream if you please, and serve right out of the pan. These can get messy, so have fun with them!

Servings: 4-6
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15

Ingredients

  • Hard Taco Shells
  • Whole Pre-Cooked Rotisserie Chicken
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheese (Tex Mex Blend)
  • 1 1/2 cans Enchilada Sauce (approx 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup Green Onions

Equipment

  • Casserole Dish
  • Mixing Bowl

Method

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Take your pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, remove the skin, and de-bone the chicken. Place all the meat into a mixing bowl.
  • Pour 1/2 can of enchilada sauce (about 3/4 cup) into the chicken, and begin shredding the chicken with two forks while combining it with the sauce.
  • Line your casserole dish with as many hard taco shells as it will fit. We used a large casserole dish that fit 13 shells.
  • Spoon the chicken mixture evenly amongst the tacos.
  • Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the chicken on the tacos, and top with shredded cheese.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, and the chicken is heated through (it's already cooked, so don't worry about it being under-cooked!)
