Crunchy Baked Cream Cheese Chicken Tacos



I don't know what it is about cream cheese, chicken, and Mexican dishes but I love it! I'm always coming up with new recipes where I can use cream cheese chicken. This dish is no exception! It was the perfect combo and then add additional melted cheese on top and you are in taco heaven!


Crunchy Baked Cream Cheese Chicken Tacos
Makes 12 Tacos
WW PP=3 Per Taco
Cal 127, Carbs 8.2, Fat 5.6, Fiber 1g, Protein 9.5

Ingredients
2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup reduced fat shredded Monterrey jack cheese
12 hard shell tacos
any other taco toppings of your choice (shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, cilantro etc)

In a large mixing bowl combine chicken, cream cheese, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, and salsa. Stir until all ingredients are well combined. Spoon chicken into taco shells and place in a lightly greased baking dish. Top with shredded cheese.

Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken is hot. Serve with additional toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
