Oven Baked Salsa Chicken Tacos

I was hoping to be posting more grilling/spring/summer type recipes but I don't see any warm weather coming our way anytime soon. This Chicago weather is insane! I mean seriously. Today is so cold and blustery with below 0 wind chills. I feel like it's January, not almost April. I am longing for some warm weather. I'm so desperate that I'd be happy with 50 degrees! Anyway, I'm hoping these oven baked salsa chicken tacos will warm me up instead! They were a great change from your everyday tacos!

Oven Baked Salsa Chicken Tacos
Makes 10 Tacos
WW PP=4 per taco
Cal 136, Fat 6g, Carbs 10g, Fiber 1g, Protein 13g

3 cups cooked shredded chicken (I used 3 chicken breasts that I cooked in the crock pot)
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup salsa
2 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese (I used a 4 cheese blend)
10 hard shell tacos
lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, etc for toppings

Arrange taco shells in a baking dish.

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except for shredded cheese. Mix well and evenly distribute between the taco shells. Top with shredded cheddar. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and taco shells are nicely browned and crispy. Enjoy!
