I’m not sure why, but for whatever reason I’m predisposed to love miniature versions of just about everything.

I love the little tiny hot sauce bottles you get from room service, and these Mini Chicken Caesar Taco Bowls!

By far, the best part of partnering with my friends over at Old El Paso™ is all of the awesome food swag.

I’m completely obsessed with these Mini Soft Tortilla Taco Bowls and use them for everything. I love filling them with scrambled eggs in the morning, or using them to finish off pretty much any leftovers I have in the fridge.

For this mini taco recipe, I spritzed them with a bit of oil and let them crisp up in the oven for a few minutes. Most of the time I just eat them as-is.

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 12 Mini Soft Tortilla Taco Bowls (one package)
  • Cooking spray or aerosol olive oil
  • 3 cups diced, cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup Caesar salad dressing
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/3 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325° Fahrenheit. Arrange the mini taco bowls on a large baking sheet and lightly spritz with cooking spray or olive oil. Bake in the heated oven for 2-3 minutes, until warm and slightly toasted.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the cooked chicken meat with the Caesar salad dressing. Remove the toasted mini taco bowls from the oven and place 1/8 cup sliced romaine lettuce into each tortilla. Scoop 1/4 cup dressed chicken into each taco bowl.
  3. Divide the chopped cilantro and queso fresco amongst the tortillas, then sprinkle freshly ground black pepper onto the top of each taco.

Notes

Try making this recipe with the breast meat from a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken; these tacos are especially delicious when the chicken is still hot.

If you’re really in a hurry, skip toasting the taco bowls; they’re delicious just as they are!
