Ingredients

For the salsa chicken:

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast boneless, skinless
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) packet Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar Homestyle Mild Salsa
  • 1 (4 ounce) can Diced Green Chiles drained

For the tortilla bowls:

  • 1 Bakeable Tortilla Bowl Kit
  • 2 cups Cooked rice for serving
  • 2 cups Shredded lettuce for serving
  • 1 cup Diced tomatoes for serving
  • 1 avocado diced, for serving
  • Ortega Chipotle Flavor Craver Taco Sauce for serving (see notes)

Instructions

To make the salsa chicken:

  • Coat chicken breast with taco seasoning and place in the bottom of a slow cooker. Top with salsa and green chiles. 
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Shred the chicken with two forks and keep warm until serving time.

To make the tortilla bowls:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Press tortillas into baking bowls, forming to curves. Pierce tortillas with a fork 3 to 4 times to prevent bubbles.
  • Place on baking sheet. Bake until edges are golden brown or to desired doneness, about 9 to 10 minutes. Cool.
  • Divide rice, chicken, and toppings among tortilla bowls. Drizzle with sauce and serve.

Notes

To make your own Chipotle Ranch, make my Homemade Ranch Dressing. Stir in 1 minced chipotle pepper, 2 teaspoons adobo sauce, and 1/4 teaspoon salt (or add chipotles, adobo, and salt to taste).
