    This recipe was very good. My family really enjoyed. I didn't use the chicken in a can. I used chicken tenders that I diced and cooked and added garlic it was pretty good.

  • Better as a dip

    Not great as far as chicken tacos go but we liked it as a dip.

  • Very bland and ingredient proportion errors

    I just tried this. I followed the recipe except that I clearly had too many onions in ratio with chicken. So how much does a medium onion equate to anyway. Also, I only used half a can of the soup. But the real problem is that it had no flavor. It is one of the blandest, blah recipes I have ever tried. I will definitely not be repeating.

    These tacos took no time to make, a heat and eat kind of meal. It's a good option if you have very little time, though if I was making this for a family I would probably double it. I am also from Texas and think it's a little bland, you might want to add more chili powder or even some chopped bell peppers would be nice. The canned chicken is good, I used a fork to shred mine and it came out really well. Though one could use precooked rotisserie chicken and shred that too.
