These BBQ Loaded Chicken Taco Fries are beyond anything your fingers have ever held to your mouth. It’s all of your favorite taco flavors coming together in one dish, including succulent shredded chicken, homemade potato wedges, cheese, corn, onion, tomatoes, jalapeños, avocado, and completely smothered in BBQ sauce (with a pinch of spice) and “lime crema”.
Rain is upon us today in NYC and I’m actually loving it. There’s something about rain when you’re indoors and able to relax.
Although it’s been a pretty busy weekend for me—studying, an exam at school, work, and more work…..I’m pretty content with how my weekend went. But of course, it’s Monday again and the start of another work week for many of us!
On a lighter note, I’ve been so excited to having tried out a few amazing recipes and flavors that have taken a new direction in and of themselves, and I can’t wait to share them with you soon!
Also, I must say that I can’t wait until we get nicer weather. I know that April is all about April showers, however, it seems like the cold weather doesn’t want to make it’s final curtain call. Haha.
So, I do hope that these showers will bring May flowers! The cold just keeps sticking around! I guess we won’t have a Spring season this year. Oh well.
But I won’t allow this stint to make my days gloomy. Matter of fact, I’ve been enjoying these delicious Cranberry Orange Crumble Muffins which have done the trick in making the sun come out more (at least in my head anyway!). Haha.
But can you imagine eating these loaded fries? Oh my gosh—they are so amazing! In this recipe, I chose to make homemade potato wedges (**Recipe in notes below**) using a few russet potatoes before topping them with all the remaining amazing ingredients.
Once you’ve made the potato wedges and baked the chicken, everything else is a breeze!
Did I ever mention that most of my spices and seasonings are from McCormick? Yup! I thoroughly enjoy their brand’s quality of seasoning and it enhances the taste of your food, indeed.
Then, to top things off, I simply heated the BBQ sauce (Stubb’s BBQ sauce is my absolute fave!) and added a tsp of sriracha and a few pinches of red pepper flakes until they came to a slight boil.
In addition, I made a Lime Crema sauce, which consisted of sour cream, lime juice, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and dried parsley. Wallah!
Just top your taco fries with these two sauces once you’re complete and you have yourself a dynamite meal! YUM! I definitely need to make this dish AGAIN. My husband and I actually ate ours right out of the baking pan and it was ALL GONE! Haha.
To start, you simply make your homemade potato wedges or you can also use a pre-packaged version and cook based on packaging instructions, if desired.
Once done, place the fries on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and add shredded cheese and shredded chicken breast atop.
Bake in the oven on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes, until cheese has melted. Next, remove from oven and top baked wedges and chicken with remaining ingredients, including the BBQ sauce and Lime Crema sauce and serve!
