Taco Soup Boat Ingredients
Simple pantry items you are likely to have in your pantry for this recipe!
For this recipe I’ve used Old El Paso’s Flour Tortilla Taco Boats and their Original Taco Seasoning.
Saute Onions and Garlic
You’ll start by sautéing some white onion then minced garlic in some extra virgin olive oil.
Stir in your cooked shredded chicken, broth and then diced tomatoes with peppers.
White beans, drained up next.
2 tablespoons Old El Paso Taco Seasoning.
Up next, add 2 tablespoons of dried cumin as well.
Stir in your sour cream.
Fresh chopped cilantro!
Prepare Soup Boats/Bowls
Bake your taco boats until crisp then melt cheese over tops.
Spoon soup into taco boats and serve warm.
Tips For Chicken Taco Soup Boats
*Try switching up the protein if you’d like. Beef and even ground sausage works great.
*Save any leftover soup and serve it over rice for another dinner idea.
*Serve with a small dollop of sour cream for a creamy version.

Want to make this tonight. How much sour cream in the recipe? Looks like it was omitted from the list. Thanks!
Such an interesting idea to let the kids eat taco soup. I will have to try this. Thank you for sharing.
Can you please indicate how much sour cream in this recipe? Thank you!
The recipe doesn’t have the white beans, sour cream or tomatoes listed.
Agree with Maureen and would love complete recipe with amounts 🙂
Do the tortilla boats come that way? I have never ever seen them in 4 stores I went to get some for a different recipe. Or do you form them yourself then bake them. How would you form and keep shaped till baked?
Phyllis, the taco boats are an Old El Paso product that come as pictured. They can be hard to find. I can only think of one local store that carries them, and they don’t always carry the same varieties that Jenny uses. I would imagine you can order them online.
