Print Recipe


  • 4 large corn tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup corn drained
  • 1/4 cup black beans drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 8 jalapeno slices
  • Sour cream salsa, cilantro, guacamole for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Cut the corn tortillas into 8 circles, using a large cookie cutter or the top of a red wine glass. Place each circle into a sprayed muffin tin, pressing and folding the tortillas as you go. This will form â??cupsâ? with the tortillas.
  • Bake the tortillas for 10 minutes.
  • While the tortillas cook, heat the chicken, taco seasoning, corn, black beans and tomatoes with olive oil in a medium skillet on medium heat until heated through and sizzling.
  • Take tortillas out of the oven and fill each cup with the chicken mixture. Top with cheese and jalapenos. Continue baking for about 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted and tortillas are browned/crisp.
  • Take out of oven and top with your choice of toppings. I used sour cream, cilantro, and avocado.
  • Enjoy!
