Recipe Continues Below


  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix oil and taco seasoning mix. Add chicken; seal bag. Shake until chicken is evenly coated. If not grilling immediately, place in refrigerator to marinate, up to 2 hours.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place chicken on grill over medium heat (350°F to 400°F). Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).
  3. Transfer to cutting board, and cover loosely with foil; let rest 5 minutes, then chop.
  4. Divide lettuce and chicken among heated taco shells; drizzle with dressing. Top with tomato, corn and cheese. Serve with lime wedges.

  • This recipe also tastes great in Old El Paso™ Soft Tortilla Bowls.
  • Use whatever kind of cooked corn you prefer. Canned, cooked frozen or cooked fresh corn all work well.
