You will need
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp ground cumin
Freshly ground black pepper
2 cups Shredded chicken
1 can green chilis
1 cup Salsa
1 Can Refried Beans
9 hard taco shells
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (pepper jack suggested)
Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350º. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until tender, 6 minutes, then add cumin and season with salt and pepper. Stir until combined. Add chicken, green chilis, and salsa and stir until combined and heated through.
In a baking dish, spread a thin layer of refried beans (to help the taco shells stand up!). Spoon remaining refried beans into the bottom of a taco shell and top with chicken mixture. Place in baking dish. Repeat with remaining taco shells and ingredients, tightly standing up the taco shells in the dish.
Top all over with cheese and bake until cheese is melted, 10 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
