Barbara's Notes + Tips
Can you make these in less than 30 minutesThese can be made in less than 30 minutes with only 10 minutes of prep time.
How can you make them spicierIf you love spicy food, try adding jalapenos to the chicken mixture. Or if some of your group want spicy and some mild, add chopped chipotle peppers to the dipping sauce.
What’s the best way to shred chickenOnce you have removed the chicken from the bones, use two forks to shred the chicken into bite size pieces.
Can you make these into an appetizerIf making for an appetizer, try using a 6 inch tortilla and cut in half after baking.
Why should you grate your own cheesePre-grated cheese contains a preservative to keep it from sticking together. This also keeps it from melting as well as cheese you buy in a block.
