Ingredient List

  • 1 Old El Paso™ Tacos For Two Hard Taco Kit
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • ½ lb (250 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 large or 2 small breasts)
  • ½ cup (125 mL) water
  • ½ cup (125 mL) frozen whole kernel corn
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese or any shredded cheese blend
  • 2 to 3 radishes, thinly sliced
  • Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 325°F (160°C). Heat taco shells from the kit according to package directions. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heal oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes on each side to brown.
  2. Add enough water to skillet to come two-thirds of the way up sides of the chicken; cover skillet tightly. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 13 to 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, tender and easy to shred. Cool 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer chicken to plate or cutting board and shred with two forks. Discard the cooking liquid. Return shredded chicken to the skillet. Add frozen corn, ½ cup water and the taco seasoning mix from the kit. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes until heated through and sauce is thickened.
  4. Divide chicken mixture among the taco shells. Top with cheese, radishes and cilantro or any of your favorite taco toppings.
