Ingredients

  • 6 hard corn taco shells
  • 1 chicken breast chopped (Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken) -- see notes above
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 1/3 cup finely diced red pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely diced tomato drained of juices
  • 1 green onion sliced
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • drizzle of honey if desired
  • pinch of salt
  • Taco toppings as desired: tomato salsa sour cream, cilantro, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line up taco shells in an 8x8" pan so that they are snug and standing upright.
  • Divide chicken between the taco shells. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken is heated through.
  • While the tacos are baking, prepare your salsa: combine pineapple, red pepper, tomato, green onion, lime zest and juice in a medium bowl. Add a drizzle of honey if desired and salt to taste.
  • Serve tacos with pineapple salsa and desired taco toppings!

Notes

*Because baked tacos don't keep well, I didn't want to make a huge batch. The recipe is easily double for a 9x13" pan if you need.
