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.
