Ingredients

  • 1 Old El Paso Soft Taco Kit
  • comes with taco seasoning, mild taco sauce and soft tacos
  • 1 Avocado
  • 5 strips of bacon crumbled
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese
  • 1 cup of fresh diced tomato
  • 1 cup of shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup of salsa
  • 1 lime

Instructions

  • Begin preparing your ingredients by slicing the chicken breasts into bite size pieces, and seasoning them with the taco seasoning from the dinner kit and a drizzle of fresh lime juice. Place the chicken to the side, then slice the ingredients for the toppings including the tomato, the avocado, and any other toppings you selected. Be sure to add a sprinkle of lime juice to the sliced avocado!
  • Tip: I like to go ahead and put all of my toppings into separate bowls so I can quickly set up the game day mini taco bar!
  • If using the oven to heat the soft tacos, this a good time to go ahead and place them in to begin warming. If using the microwave you can save this for last.
  • Now, cook the bacon in a large skillet, then set it off to the side on a paper towel. Do not drain all of the bacon grease from the skillet as you will want to reserve at least 2 tablespoons for extra flavor.
  • Place the chicken into the skillet with the bacon grease, add a little bit more of the included taco seasoning, and another squeeze of fresh lime juice.
  • Cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
  • Once the chicken is finished all that's left to do is crumble the bacon, place it in another small bowl, and set up all of the ingredients on the table so people can begin making their Chicken, Avocado & Bacon Soft Tacos however they please.
