How To Prepare Chicken Enchilada Soup Boats

Chicken Enchilada Soup Boats

I used Old El Paso’s Whole Wheat Taco Boats as a “bowl” for my simple soup. The kids loved this! I placed the taco boats onto a baking sheet and bake until slightly browned and crispy.

Only takes about 10 minutes and they come out nice and crisp to hold your soup.

    Jenny, I did not even know there was such a thing as whole wheat taco boats. What a great way to use them! Thanks for sharing this great weeknight meal. I’m going to look for those wheat shells this week! I bet they would work great with some kind of spicy breakfast egg dish too!
