– cooked chicken shredded (Rotisserie chicken works great for this recipe.) – olive oil – taco seasoning – diced white onion – canned diced tomatoes – canned diced green chiles – stand and stuff crunchy taco shells (flat on the bottom) – refried beans – shredded Mexican cheese blend – Taco toppings ( I recommend shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream, sliced jalapenos, chopped fresh cilantro and lime wedges.)

Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a 9×13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium size skillet, heat oil on medium heat.

Step 1

Add onion to the pan and cook 2-3 minutes, until translucent. Stir in the shredded chicken, taco seasoning, drained tomatoes and drained green chiles. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for 5-8 minutes.

Step 2

Arrange the taco shells in prepared baking dish, standing up. Warm the taco shells in the oven for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven. Spoon and spread 1 tbsp of refried beans into the bottom of each shell. Top with chicken mixture, leaving a little room for taco toppings.

Step 3

Sprinkle each taco generously with cheese. Bake for 7-10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the shells are just starting to brown. Remove from the oven and top with your favorite taco toppings and a squeeze of lime.
