These cheesy tacos use the On The Border Queso Sauce. My sister actually worked at On The Border when we grew up so this sauce holds a special place in my heart. I could eat On The Border Queso as my meal with their thin and crispy tortilla chips. And don’t even get me started on their fajitas and tortillas!

On The Border Queso Sauce

The On The Border Queso has a lot of flavor in it. Much more than a typical queso. I’m not sure if it’s the real cheese or the bell peppers they include but just be aware that there are lots of spices already in it. Also, I picked up the medium flavor queso and it was a little spicy for my kids. If you are making this for kids you may want to get the mild flavor.

Since the On The Border Queso has so much flavor I didn’t want to add any taco seasoning to the recipe. I kept it simple with ingredients I had in my pantry and it turned out great.

All of my recipes are gluten free because my husband has celiac disease, which means you are allergic to gluten. I always use Pacific Foods Cream of Chicken Soup because it is made without gluten.

I always have these taco shells in the pantry too. I love a good hard shelled taco to give the creamy chicken a little crunch. Top with your favorite toppings like shredded lettuce, tomatoes and jalapeƱos.
