Soft flour tortilla shells make a great edible bowl for a loaded chicken salad taco!

Chicken Salad Tacos

I absolutely love taco salads so when I thought to scoop it into a soft taco shell to serve to a crowd, I was ecstatic by how much everyone enjoyed them! It’s the best of both! You get the awesome salad that’s loaded with chicken, corn, black beans, lettuce, cheese, etc. along with the luxury of eating it with your hands. These tacos are crowd-pleasing and party perfect!

    1. Hi Leslie! I’ve found them at Tom Thumb, Target, & Walmart. They’ll be right by the other taco shells. The brand is Old El Paso.
