  • 9x13" Baking Dish


  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 ounce taco seasoning
  • 12 hard taco shells
  • 1 1/2 cups Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 avocados diced, optional topping
  • 2 tomatoes diced, optional topping
  • 15 ounces black beans optional topping
  • 2.25 ounce sliced black olives optional topping
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce optional topping


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large 9 x 13 inch baking pan, line up all of the hard taco shells so they are touching without falling over.
  • Combine shredded chicken, salsa, and taco seasoning in a bowl. Homemade taco seasoning or store-bought work great here.
  • Spoon chicken mixture evenly into all of the taco shells and top with Mexican blend cheese.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese has completely melted and chicken is heated through.
  • Top with sour cream and your favorite taco toppings. We love avocado, tomatoes, black beans, olives, and shredded lettuce.
