  1. Heat oven to 375°F (180°C). Pull off tin foil pieces. Layer 2 pieces to create square sheets. 2-3 tenders can go into 1 packet. So prepare the respective amount of sheets.
  2. Mix black beans, corn and taco seasoning in a bowl. Divide between the foil sheets, making a small heap in the middle of each sheet.
  3. Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper and put them on top of the bean-corn mix on each sheet. 2-3 placed next to each other on each sheet.
  4. Top chicken tenders with salsa and sprinkle shredded Mexican blend cheese over everything.
  5. Bring first the sides of the foil together that have the opening from layering and fold the edges down. Then fold the other 2 sides in, so that the packet is securely closed.
  6. Put packets on rack and put into the oven at a medium position. Bake for about 25 minutes until chicken tenders are fully cooked. Cut avocado in slices, if desired.
  7. Open foil so that all of the food is exposed and set oven to broil high. Broil for another 2-3 minutes. Serve with avocado and sour cream, if desired.
