What you'll need

  • 1 pkg. 6-inch-diameter taco shells (12 shells)
  • 1 pkg. 1-1/4 ounce package taco seasoning mix
  • 2 2/3 cup cooked chicken (1 pound), torn into small pieces or shredded
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 2 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomato
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion


  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the taco shells on a cookie sheet.
  • Step 2
    In a skillet, combine the taco seasoning and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil; add the cooked chicken and simmer 10 to 15 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed into the chicken.
  • Step 3
    Bake the taco shells 5 to 7 minutes, until warm.
  • Step 4
    Place 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture in each taco shell. Top each with 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese, 1 tablespoon sour cream, some shredded lettuce, diced tomato, and chopped onion. Serve immediately.
