How to make chicken ranch tacos
Cook and shred your chicken however you choose. I use a slow cooker most of the time.
Add shredded chicken, taco seasoning, and ranch seasoning to a large skillet.
Add in the broth and mix well.
Heat over medium-low heat until the mixture is hot and most of the liquid is evaporated.
Serve in your choice of taco shell and top with your favorite toppings.
Notes: Swap the shredded chicken for ground chicken, ground turkey, or ground beef.
Use your favorite type of shredded cheese and additional toppings. This taco recipe is very versatile and feel free to tweak it to your liking or to fit what you have on hand.
I like to use low-carb tortillas to keep this taco recipe more keto friendly.
