The only thing better than a taco is a taco in a taco. This one is filled with delicious pulled chicken and topped with the king of all BBQ Sauces!


  • 2 whole large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ cup + Rufus Teague Touch O' Heat BBQ Sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • For assembling the tacos:
  • Re-fried beans
  • Your favorite shredded cheese
  • Hard shell and soft shell tacos
  • Pickled pepperoncinis
  • Red Cabbage


  1. Combine water with 1/2 cup BBQ sauce in a medium sized pot. Add bay leaves, salt and peppercorns. Turn the pot on low and let the water come to a low simmer.
  2. Add your chicken breast to the BBQ/water mixture. Cover with lid.
  3. Allow the chicken to poach in the liquid for about 20 minutes, or until tender and cooked through.
  4. Remove chicken from pot. Start to shred and add more bbq sauce to the chicken.
  5. Once the chicken is shredded, start to assemble your double decker tacos.
  6. Start with your soft taco. Heat it up slightly, but keep it pliable.
  7. Spread on your warmed refried beans and sprinkle some shredded cheese.
  8. Center your hard shell taco in the middle of the soft taco. Bring up the sides of the soft taco.
  9. Fill the hard shell with the chicken, more sauce, and your favorite toppings!
