Want to make an easy and delicious dinner, Baked Chicken Tacos are the ideal answer. It’s a favorite with many individuals, and I love that it's minimal clean up and super easy.

Made in less than 30 minutes, the spicy shredded chicken filling bakes up in the crispy taco shells so fast and will leave the crowd happy! Here’s what you’ll need:


1/2 lb. cooked chicken shredded (I used cooked Rotisserie chicken)

1 tbsp olive oil

10 Stand and Stuff Taco Shells (I used Old El Paso)

1 oz. Taco Seasoning click for homemade recipe!

1/2 c. onion diced

1 can Green Chiles 4.5 oz., chopped and fully drained

1 can diced tomato 14.5 oz., fully drained

Toppings such as Old El Paso sliced Jalapenos, sour cream, salsa, chopped cilantro, shredded lettuce, or any of your favorite taco toppings!

8 oz. Refried Beans 1/2 can

2 c. Mexican Blend Cheese shredded


Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F. Using a nonstick spray, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes or until clear and aromatic.

Add the chicken, taco seasoning, fully drained tomatoes, and green chiles. Stir well until completely combined. Decrease the heat to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 to 8 minutes.

In the baking dish, place the taco shells standing up. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake the taco shells for about 5 minutes until crisp. Take them out of the oven when done.

Into the bottom of each taco shell, spoon 1 tbsp of beans. Add the chicken on top, then generously sprinkle with shredded cheese. Return to the oven and continue baking the tacos for another 7 to 10 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted and the edges of the shells are browned.

Before serving, top the tacos with your preferred toppings like jalapenos, sour cream, cilantro, and salsa.
