Chicken Ranch Tacos

Easy chicken recipes are the goal right now. Taco nights are also increasing over here since they are simple, versatile, and tasty.

Chicken ranch tacos will now be in our meal rotation permanently. Adding ranch seasoning to shredded chicken adds so much flavor.

Shredded chicken tacos are always good, but the tangy flavor of ranch brings them to another level.

I think I will make a double-decker taco pizza using this shredded chicken with ranch filling next time!

Have you ever seen one of those memes about midwesterners and ranch dressing? I’ve seen ones that say something about people in the midwest sitting on their front porches sipping on ranch dressing. Pretty sure that will be exactly me soon!

I’ve always loved ranch dressing, but lately, I put it on everything. Fitting the midwestern stereotype perfectly and loving every minute of it, you can always find ranch dressing mix in my cabinet!
