  3. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Heat the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir the remaining taco seasoning, stock and soup in the saucepan. Stir in the chicken.

My kid who hates everything loves it! Winner winner chicken dinner!

I made this tonight with a few changes to make due with what I had on hand. Used chicken boullion, made my own taco seasonings because I was out. Added beer for both flavor and tenderizing prope...

Good. I cooked the chicken on the stove in order to prepare it sooner. I halved the cheese and it was still very cheesy. I added green peppers which helped, but next time I will try adding mo...
