Ranch Chicken Tacos

Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Combine ranch dressing, sour cream, 1 teaspoon taco seasoning, and salsa in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. Toss chicken with remaining taco seasoning. Cover bowl loosely with wax paper or plastic wrap. Microwave chicken until chicken is heated through, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Warm the tortillas in a skillet for about a minute on each side to make them pliable. Place a scoop of chicken on the tortilla and top with lettuce, tomato, green onion, olives, avocado, cheese, and a spoonful of the ranch dressing mixture.

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 ch...

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 the...

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...

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.

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.
