I can hardly believe it is almost May! Where has 2017 gone?

This year is just flying by. I am doing my best to keep up with it!

We love celebrating Cinco de Mayo and celebrating the Mexican armies unlikely defeat for French forces.

It’s a double holiday to celebrate, because my husband was born on May 5th too! 

He is totally okay with us celebrating both holidays together as he is a huge fan of Mexican cuisine.

I make sure my pantry is always stocked with Old El Paso products from Walmart. There are so many delicious recipes I can pull together in a snap with their refried beans, enchilada sauces, seasoning packet, taco boats, taco shells, and more! 

We have tacos at least once a week and my favorite dish to make for a crowd is layered enchiladas. 

Green Chili Chicken Taco Boats

This Green Chili Chicken Taco Boats recipe was inspired by our love of tacos and enchiladas. 

I can’t wait to serve our friends and family these delicious green chili chicken taco boats at our celebration. I know they will be a new favorite and make it into our weekly dinner menu too.

    I loved this recipe so much that I’ve made it TWICE.
    The first time I made them on 5/5/17, my grocery store was out of shredded lettuce and sour cream (modern cinco de mayo probs lol) but they were still amazing! I just made them last night and had everything I needed! Thanks for this awesome twist on taco boats 😀
