Seriously, who doesn't love Taco Bell? And who wouldn't love to get Taco Bell quality out of your own kitchen? I read the comments and saw how many people said it really did taste like Taco Bell and I got even more excited. I gathered up all the necessary ingredients and got to work.
I followed the recipe to the letter and they came out EXACTLY like the blog writer said they would! They were creamy, tasty, and very similar to Taco Bell. They even looked just like the pictures! My sister, mother, and I ate them up quickly. The recipe was a success!
Taken from laurassweetspot.com
1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz) container sour cream
1 Tbsp plus 1½ tsp chile powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder (or 1 clove finely minced/pressed)
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp ground coriander
pinch cayenne pepper, optional
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (or cut into tiny chunks), about 2-3 cups worth
1 (10 oz) can Rotel tomatoes with green chiles, drained
1 package burrito sized flour tortillas
spray oil or butter
- Beat the cream cheese in medium bowl until smooth and well softened.
- Mix in sour cream until well blended.
- Add spices, then cheese and chicken (eyeball the amount of chicken- you don’t want the mixture too loose or too dry, it should have a nice spreadable consistency).
- Add Rotel.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat. Grease pan with either spray oil or butter. Fill half a tortilla with about ⅓ cup chicken mixture. Fold tortilla over and place in skillet. Toast each side until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Serve warm!
