Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My entire family loved these ... My entire family loved these ... especially the shells. I cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot for about 5 hours with some garlic salt, pepper and chicken stock. I shredded the chicken right in the crock pot and added a taco seasoning packet, and some chili powder, and a little water. As for eating them, some of us broke them up like nachos and put toppings, and some others just bit right in like a taco.

It is much easier to turn over a muffin pan and place the tortilla in between the muffin cups to form a "bowl". I also would cook the chicken in the salsa so that the flavor in incorporated with the chicken instead of just put on the chicken.Also add some avocado and sour cream.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Made these for a family Cinco de Mayo dinner. Made these for a family Cinco de Mayo dinner. Our bowls were less defined, and perhaps not as rigid. We simmered chicken in taco seasoning instead. People did not know to eat them and were trying to eat them like a taco.
