Try This Quick and Delicious Taco Salsa Chicken Recipe

This Mexican-inspired dish is too easy not to try. Easy ingredients make it a parent's favorite go-to dish, while delicious flavors make it a family favorite. A lot of families have a Mexican night pretty frequently. If you've been getting bored with tacos or with your family's old enchiladas recipe, you're in the right place.

Some Mexican recipes use a lot of ingredients to achieve a desired taste. This taco salsa chicken recipe only calls for five ingredients, with one of them being optional. Not only does that make it easy, it makes it affordable for the average family.

Many Mexican recipes also use beef. We've chosen chicken instead of beef to change things up, as well as to provide a healthier option for families looking for one. Beef is great, but chicken is often lower in calories and fat. That makes it a better choice for many.

This recipe takes between 30 and 40 minutes to bake. It's perfect for a weeknight dinner, when you just don't have time for anything hard or elaborate. Definitely bookmark this one for all of the nights when you just need something simple to cook. Simple doesn't have to mean boring!
