Buffalo Chicken Tacos is one of our husbands’ favorite meal!  It is a nice alternative to your normal Taco Tuesday, because you will be spicing (pun intended) it up a little bit.  They are really easy to make and sooooo good! Give them a try next Taco Tuesday! Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

Buffalo Chicken Mixture:

  • 1 lb of ground chicken
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (we use mild because we are babies)

  • Buffalo chicken mixture
  • Mexican four cheese shredded cheese
  • Lettuce (optional)
  • Tomatoes (optional)
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Hot sauce (optional)
  • Avocado (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Buffalo Chicken Mixture

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cook ground chicken in a stove top pan, until done
  3. Place the cream cheese, butter, and hot sauce into a large pan and simmer over medium heat until the cream cheese has melted. Making sure to stir frequently because it will burn (lesson learned!).
  4. Place the ground chicken into the mixture and stir to coat. Remove from heat.

Tacos

  1. Line hard taco shells into an 8×8 baking dish or a 9×13 baking dish, depending on how many tacos you are making.
