  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can green chiles (drained)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 cup sour cream divided
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 10 hard taco shells
  • ¾ cup refried beans
  • ½ cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (or you can use feta)
  • cup cilantro chopped
  • 20 cherry tomatoes diced
  • 1 avocado diced


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine your shredded chicken, green chiles, honey, 1/3 cup sour cream, and pepper.
  • Mix until well combined.
  • Place your taco shells in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  • Spread about 1 Tablespoon of the refried beans on the bottom of each shell with a spoon.
  • Place about 1/4 cup of your chicken mixture on top of the refried beans.
  • Sprinkle the chicken layer with cheese.
  • Place the tacos in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is warm.

  • These are also delicious with a little ranch or salsa on them.


You can also use plain Greek Yogurt in place of the sour cream.
