Smoky Chicken Tacos/Scoops

Echo Day

By

These started out as smoky chicken tacos, using leftovers from a rotisserie chicken, but ended up an instant favorite in our house!

After I assembled the tacos for my husband, I put some Baked Tostitos Scoops on the side and handed off the plate. He LOVED the tacos and wanted another before I had even finished making my plate. When I carried his plate to the kitchen, I noticed some of the meat had fallen into one of the scoops and a lightbulb went off.

I quickly put some of the chicken mixture into one of the scoops, topped it with salsa verde and sour cream and had a quick taste test. And I just about died and went to heaven. It was THAT GOOD.

Try it! You won't be disappointed!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I love finding new appetizers to share with my friends, and this one is a real find. Tasting this during the preparation made me wonder if it might be a little too spicy for my taste. When I was through, though, the flavors had melded together to form a perfectly scrumptious little bite!
