  • 1/2 a yellow onion diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 1 TBSP unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 3 cups shredded rotisserie shredded chicken
  • 1 cup buffalo sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • 12 hard shell tacos
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 by 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the onion and celery, stirring often. Add the garlic salt.
  • Once the onions are soft and translucent, add the chicken, buffalo sauce, and one cup of mozzarella cheese in large bowl.
  • Set up the tacos in the baking dish so they are all standing up, and divide the filling amongst them. Approximately 1/3 cup of the filling into each shell. Top with the remaining mozzarella and then the blue cheese.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted and the shells begin to brown. Serve immediately.
