    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 10
    4 tbsp. butter
    ¼ c. Buffalo wing sauce
    2 ½ c. shredded cooked chicken
    1 box(es) (4.7 oz) Old El Paso™ Stand 'n Stuff Taco Shells (10 Count)
    2 c. coleslaw mix
    ¼ c. ranch dressing
    1 c. shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (4 oz)
    2 tbsp. tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

    Things To Grab

    • 10-inch nonstick skillet
    • Wooden spoon or silicone spatula
    • Medium bowl


    1. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add Buffalo wing sauce. Stir in chicken; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is heated through.

    2. Meanwhile, heat taco shells as directed on package. In medium bowl, mix coleslaw mix and dressing until blended.

    3. Divide chicken among warm shells; top with cheese. Top with coleslaw mixture and cilantro.

    4. Tips:

      For added heat, top with chopped pickled jalapeño peppers.

      To fully melt cheese, place half of the cheese-topped chicken-filled tacos on a plate, and microwave uncovered on High 30 to 45 seconds or until cheese is melted. Repeat with other half of tacos, then top with coleslaw mixture and cilantro.

      For even more Buffalo chicken-inspired flavor, substitute creamy blue cheese dressing for the ranch dressing.
