I am a fan of tacos. I really like the hard shell tacos, but really hate the crumbling-messy-juice-running-down-my-wrist catastrophe that eating them usually involves. I mean, you have to turn your head to at least a 45 degree angle and let the taco juice run into your ear or unhinge your jaw to get a taste of all the layers, not just a mouthful of cheese or sour cream.
I found a recipe for Easy Oven Baked Spicy Chicken Tacos on a foodie site called The Cookie Rookie. BAKED TACOS? Why hadn't I thought of this?

I followed the recipe, but switched out ground beef for the chicken (planning ahead is a skill I'm still developing) and left out the refried beans (my family refuses to entertain the idea of eating them, even though they are DELICIOUS)
I have no pictures of the cooking process. I have no step by step descriptions.
I have only this.
My humble opinion.
You MUST make these. They are tasty, they are not messy. And you won't have to unhinge your jaw or slice a gum open trying to fit them in your mouth. The shells are warm and pliable (not soggy) and able to receive additional toppings if you desire.
