How to make oven-baked easy chicken tacos

Print this recipe
Crunchy tacos are my favorite!! I can seriously eat them any day of the week. I love to load them up with all the fixings but they're just as good as they are right out the oven. In the recipe below we make a super delicious oven baked taco with chicken. You can do this recipe with any meat you like and won't ever be disappointed.
We start of by sautéing onions and garlic in olive oil. Then we add in the taco seasoning packet and let that cook with the onions and the garlic for another minute two. This helps bloom all the seasonings so their flavor really comes out in the dish. Chicken is then added along with drained diced canned tomatoes and green chiles. We let this all simmer together and assemble the tacos with refried beans in the casserole loaded with cheese. Just 15 minutes later and you'll have some of the tastiest simplest tacos ever.
