DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400. Spray a 13x9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a medium skillet. Add onion to skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the onion is translucent and fragrant.
  • Stir in the chicken, taco seasoning, tomatoes, and green chiles. Combine fully and reduce to simmer. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Place the taco shells in the baking dish, standing up.
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of beans in 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 12 to 14 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and the edges of the shells are browned.
  • Remove from the oven and top with jalapenos, sour cream, cilantro, and salsa.
