Weight Watchers Chicken Taco Cups

Hi there, this is Stefanie with Simple Acres again! I have something fresh and delicious I cooked up in the kitchen that is a perfect appetizer for game day or as a mini meal. These Weight Watchers Chicken Taco Cups are simple to make. My kids even loved these! There is only 1 Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points in each serving!

What is wonderful about these Weight Watchers Chicken Taco Cups is they have the tastes and textures of tacos but with less points. The shells could be used to make many different appetizers at a later date. Please note the WW Chicken Taco Cups are mini muffin size.
