A great change from regular Mexican style tacos. A cool summer dinner, made quick with leftover rotisserie chicken. Naturally you can use any type of chicken cooked the way you like; just be sure to shred it for real tacos.

My husband loves anything with "ranch" so I decided to try this. However I had a different take on it. I didn't warm the chicken in the microwave and made these into wrap sandwiches with flour tortillas vs. making these into tacos. I used pico de gallo vs. salsa and "Taco Seasoning II" from this site vs. a packaged seasoning mix. I left out the olives and instead thought what works best with ranch, lettuce and tomato - Bacon of course! So I added a few slices of bacon to each wrap along with the avocado slices and shredded cheddar cheese - YUM! Read More

I didn't bother cutting my ranch with sour cream. I just used my own homemade dry ranch dressing mix and added it to reduced fat sour cream. I didn't use rotisserie chicken, either. I had two chicken breasts I boiled in chicken broth with mexican spices (cumin, coriander, onion, garlic, mexican oregano), then cooled and shredded. I also used flour tortillas. This was quite good--easy and a kid pleaser. I think that next time, I'd skip the tortillas and try this as a chunky chicken taco salad. Read More

VERY VERY GOOD! My new favorite taco! The only thing I did different was to pan cook a few chicken breast with some taco seasoning on them and shred them up. The rest was the same! I LOVE these and will be making them often! They are also great for not having to use the oven in this Texas Summer Heat! Read More

Great recipe especially for these hot days. For the chicken I cooked it with the taco seasoning mixed with water on the stove (like you would typically do with ground beef). I also added a little more salsa to the sauce. Excellent! We'll definitely be eating it again. Read More

I used Light Ranch and only 2 TB fat free sour cream (I was short) for the sauce. I didn't use all of the remaining seasoning in the chicken- just eyeballed it until it looked good and seasoned and I had to add a little water to the chicken just to keep it moist. The flavor was probably only 4 stars but since it was so easy I gave it the 5th star. Hubs and the kiddo assembled theirs on flatout bread and I had mine on a spinach salad. Everyone was happy and healthy. Thanks! Read More

Really good. I found myself adding extra sauce to my tacos because the chicken was kind of dry. Otherwise it was a nice change of pace. Can't wait to make taco salad from the leftovers. Read More

Very good! We used green chili instead of regular salsa flour tortillas and excluded the onions (because I forgot) My husband loved the Ranch sauce and so did I. Read More

Yummy! My family loved this "ranch" dressing. It would be great on a taco salad as well! I did add 2 tbls of both the salsa and taco seasoning for a little bit more mexican flavor. Will make again! Read More
