Puffy Chicken Tacos

The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind for me. Right after Christmas we packed up our house into our trailer and spent 4 looooooooong days on the road, traveling over 2400 miles till we finally reached our new home town in Utah.

We are staying with family for a few more days until our new house is ready, but I just can’t wait to get into my new kitchen to make these quick and easy Puffy Chicken Tacos again. They take about 20 minutes from start to finish and they disappear much quicker.

20 Minute Puffy Chicken Tacos


They’re stuffed with sweet corn, black beans and rotisserie chicken. But it’s the puffy taco shell that really steals the spotlight. They’re made by frying Pillsbury biscuits, which taste just like a Navajo Taco (Indian Fry Bread) that you would find at your state fair.

So. Good. 

I created this popular recipe for Pillsbury, and you can find the step-by-step photos RIGHT HERE.

      I can’t wait to get started in my new kitchen. It’s going to be a long road to until I can get all those boxes unpacked… life of a food blogger! 😉

    These babies are adorable. From the title I wondered where you were going with these. For some reason I am really taken with them. Good job.

    These sound awesome! Might just be my ticket to get the family to eat leftovers. I can line up the leftovers & everyone can build their own. I think I’ll call it “crazy buffet night” and put it on Sunday’s menu.

    When these puff– do you think they can be slit & filled like a pita?

Hi, I’m Shawn and I’m a busy mom of five; pretending to live on a budget. I love to cook, and explore new recipes, but they have to be quick and easy with as few dishes as possible.
