Ingredients

  • 2.5-3 cups cooked and chopped chicken, 2 chicken breasts I like to use rotisserie chicken or poached chicken
  • 1 -10 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained well (I use Original Rotel Tomatoes)
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, loosley packed
  • 3 green onions, white and light green parts chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Mix all the ingredients together until they are well combined, place in an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.

Serving:

  • Spoon the desired amount of Creamy Chicken Taco filling into warmed flour tortillas (soft taco or fajita size). Top with your desired taco toppings. I like pickled jalapenos, banana pepper rings, sliced avocado, and shredded lettuce or spinach.

To Make Ahead:

  • Combine all the ingredients and place in an oven safe dish. Cover with foil and place in the fridge for up to 3 days. When you are ready to have Creamy Chicken Tacos for dinner pull it out of the fridge and pop it in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
