Sorry...I only remembered to take a picture after I had started chowing down!
I found this recipe on my Betty Crocker calendar. I have been trying to make each monthly recipe. This one was actually from May, so I was a touch behind. I have to say that I didn’t know how it would go over. It has baked beans on it….I’m not a huge fan of baked beans and neither is Michael, but I decided to give it a shot. The recipe looked easy and quick which I love for weeknight meals. I modified the recipe a little for what I had on hand.
Here’s what you need (makes 6 tacos):
1 ½ to 2 cups Chicken breast strips (I baked a chicken breast for mine, but then Joseph ate most of it, so I ended up using frozen grilled chicken strips from Tyson so that I would have enough…worked fine)
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
1 cup BBQ baked beans (from the can)
1 cup shredded cheddar
3 strips bacon, cooked
6 taco shells
Combine chicken, cumin, and paprika. Stir to coat chicken.
Spoon chicken evenly into shells.
Top with beans, cheese, and bacon.
Bake at 400 for 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and shells start to brown.
Give these a try. I really did like them and Michael even liked them. It's also a great way to use leftover baked beans from summer cookouts...hint hint, Mom! :)
