  • 12 medium soft taco shells
  • 2 large chicken breast (cooked and shredded)
  • 21 oz cream of chicken soup
  • 9 oz green chilies (canned)
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
  • 3 cups Colby jack cheese (shredded)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Mix together cooked and shredded chicken, cream of chicken soup, green chilis, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Remove ¾ cup and set aside.
  • Place a few spoonfuls of chicken mixture in a soft taco and roll. Place each stuffed taco shell in your prepared casserole dish.
  • Top your full casserole dish with the removed chicken mixer and then top with shredded cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and food is warm thought
    - tip using cold chicken could sauce a longer cook time.
  • Serve topped with fresh diced cilantro.


  • Cooking tip: If you are using chicken from the refrigerator you might need more cooking time to warm your casserole. I used hot and freshly cooked chicken and my casserole was warmed in 15 minutes. 
  • Cooking Tip:

    This recipe calls for cooked and shredded chicken. It's the perfect recipe for a rotisserie chicken.
    You can also make your chicken ahead of time in the slow cooker so it's ready to use by dinner. Here is my simple recipe for all-purpose slow cooker chicken. I like to use this making batches of chicken for these types of meals.
