Simple Chicken Ranch Tacos are like the finest grade of awesome you can imagine. Just a few bites and you’re transported–it’s a freaking taco that is what it’s name implies. It doesn’t take you anywhere. Heh.
I’ll just be honest here…I found a dairy-free ranch dressing and I about died.
So, I resumed my ancient and time-honored rite of dousing everything in ranch.
It’s a southern-girl thing. I think.
And thus were born the Simple Chicken Ranch Tacos.
A bite of wholesome southern goodness in a tortilla.
Basically the same as every other taco ever. Heh.
Yeah, I have to admit, these Simple Chicken Ranch Tacos are pretty much the epitome of the ranch-lover in me.
Mix chicken (a non-strong flavor, really) with corn (also not strong) and lettuce (most bland flavor of all) and then splash a little of the magic juice (aka ranch dressing) over it?
Or just make the dang tacos.
Either way, be happy.
That’s all I want from you. LOL!
In all seriousness, these Simple Chicken Ranch Tacos made me uber-happy.
They’re light and refreshing and only took about 15 minutes to make.
Unless you count the time rolling them in these cute napkins, because I thought I was being all cutesy and whatnot. Not doing that again–they were NOT cooperative tacos.
But regardless, I loved ’em and wouldn’t mind having them again tonight.
Now it’s time for you to make a decision: Pin it so you can find it fast next week.
You know you’re going to want to hit these Simple Chicken Ranch Tacos again…
