KETO CREAM CHEESE CHICKEN TACOS
For the Cream Cheese Chicken Filling:
- 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken works well)
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
For the Tacos:
- Large lettuce leaves (such as iceberg or Romaine) or low-carb tortillas
- Sliced avocado
- Shredded lettuce
- Diced tomatoes
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- Sour cream
- Chopped cilantro (optional)
- Lime wedges for serving
- In a skillet over medium heat, combine the softened cream cheese, heavy cream, and chicken broth. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
- Add the shredded chicken to the skillet and stir to coat it with the cream cheese mixture.
- Sprinkle in the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Continue to stir and cook until the chicken mixture is heated through and the flavors are well combined.
- Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a little more chicken broth or heavy cream to reach your desired consistency.
- Prepare your taco toppings: Slice the avocado, shred the lettuce, dice the tomatoes, and set out the shredded cheese, sour cream, and chopped cilantro.
- To assemble the tacos, spoon the cream cheese chicken mixture onto large lettuce leaves or low-carb tortillas.
- Top the chicken with sliced avocado, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro.
- Squeeze a lime wedge over each taco for a burst of fresh citrus flavor.
- Serve the Keto Cream Cheese Chicken Tacos immediately and enjoy!
