Baked Chicken Tacos

The BEST baked tacos.....EVER!! Actually.....the BEST tacos EVER!

One of my ALL time FAVORITE recipes!! I will never have tacos NOT baked again! Game changer!!

Full recipe in video below!


  • 3/4 pound cooked chicken- shredded

  • 1 packet taco seasoning

  • 1/2 cup onion- diced

  • 1 can diced tomato 14.5 ounce, fully drained

  • 1 can Chopped Green Chiles 4.5 ounce, fully drained

  • 10 Stand and Stuff Taco Shells

  • 8 ounces refried beans- 1/2 can or so

  • 2 cups Mexican Blend Cheese- shredded ( I used 1/2 cup of Cojita in place of shredded)

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

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray.

  • Heat nonstick cooking spray over medium heat in a medium skillet.

  • Add onion to skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion is translucent and fragrant.

  • Stir in the chicken, taco seasoning, tomatoes (FULLY DRAINED), and green chiles (FULLY DRAINED). Stir to combine fully. Reduce to simmer and allow to cook for 5-8 minutes.

  • Place the taco shells in the baking dish, standing up. I was able to fit 10 taco shells in the dish by adding 2 on each side.

  • Bake the taco shells for 5 minutes by themselves to allow them to crisp up. Remove from the oven.

  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of beans into the bottom of each taco shell. Top with the chicken mixture, almost to the top of each shell.

  • Sprinkle each shell generously with shredded cheese, the more the better!

  • Bake for 7-10 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and the edges of the shells are browned.

  • Remove from the oven and top with your favorite items such as jalapenos, sour cream, cilantro, and salsa.

  • Enjoy!
