Easy cheesy taco boat shells with chicken and mushrooms, an amazing appetizer that is full of flavours and sure to impress anyone. Unexpected guests? Not to panic, these taco boats are exactly what you need.
Isn’t it just wonderful when you can create fabulous dishes with the same ingredients? For example, this filling can go amazingly well in a lovely pot pie as well, or in a nice wrap. But get some soft tortilla taco boats, and you have a completely different dish, that not only tastes great, but also looks spectacular. I have just found my favourite appetizer ever!
It has everything I love most: my favourite cheese, chicken, and mushrooms. Now, this is not quite a Mexican dish, but a rather Mexican-style one. I have decided to keep the flavours pretty simple, and did not use taco seasoning. Instead, I bet all my money on the fantastic individual flavour of the ingredients used. And that was a good choice.
Mushrooms, for instance, make the happiest marriage in the universe with butter. Add some garlic and dill to them and you will be licking your fingers clean. Grilled chicken has such a flavour, even without using much seasoning. Interesting how the cooking technique can completely change the taste.
And cheese, well, just say cheese, and we have a pretty good idea how good the dish is. Now, bring these all together, and you have one tasty dish. You can eat the taco boats straight from the package, but l just love the crispiness you get from just baking them in the oven for 10 minutes. I could even eat them plain, they are that good! Right, let’s have some taco boats now before they cool down!
They are still heavenly tasty once they cool down, but I just love that golden crispiness you get when they are out of the oven. Plus, I have always love they food pretty food, somehow it tastes better, and it’s a lot more flavourful that cold. Taco shells can be found in pretty much any big supermarket in the international food aisle, and that’s where you can find Mexican seasoning too, in case you’d like to add some.
