Crunchy Salsa Chicken Tacos are baked in the oven for an easy and delicious taco night your whole family will enjoy.
Taco night made fun and fast with 2 Ingredient Instant Pot Salsa Chicken and crunchy taco shells. These crunchy tacos are reminiscent of a fast food joint, and that's probably why my kids liked them so much!
The best part is that you can bake all 12 tacos shells at the same time and they stay upright for easy filling. Use this same method and switch up the filling with ground beef, shredded pork, or just refried beans and cheese.
After the tacos are baked, top them with toppings of your choice. I did shredded lettuce and tomato, but I've also done guacamole. Because guac is never extra at home!
In the video below I show you how I made mine dairy free with my Vegan Cashew Queso. I also have the cutest little kitchen helper in this video.
