How to make Creamy Chicken Tacos

Heat up a medium pan with a little drizzle of vegetable oil. Fry tortillas until just lightly browned, one at a time, and set aside. 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a small or medium saucepan over low heat, place cream cheese, shredded chicken, garlic, green onion, and cheese. Stir until cream cheese is softened and all the ingredients combined (2 minutes).

Assemble the tacos. Take one tortilla at a time, fold it gently in your hands and fill each tortilla with the chicken cream cheese mixture (a little bit over half) and transfer to a baking dish close to each other so none of them will fall over.

Transfer to oven and bake for about 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted and tortillas starting to brown even more. 

Garnish with fresh jalapenos, more grated cheese, and serve while warm!

Notes

*For a more mild taste, omit the cayenne pepper. I just like my tacos hot!

Serve with freshly made guacamole on the side, salad, jalapenos, lime
