Chicken Ranch Tacos

Posted on

This recipe was listed mid-year in the free Betty Crocker calendar I received by mail and was one of the few things that interested me, so I made it right away. It’s simple and very delicious and I will definitely be making it again!

1 box (4.7 oz) Old El Paso® Stand ‘N Stuff® taco shells (10 shells)
3 cups cut-up deli rotisserie chicken (from 2- to 2 1/2-lb chicken)
1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix (or 3 tablespoons homemade)
1/2 cup ranch dressing (2 T of homemade was sufficient for me)
1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, chopped (3/4 cup)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1/4 cup sliced green onions (4 medium), if desired
Old El Paso® Thick ‘n Chunky salsa, if desired
Additional ranch dressing, if desired

1. Heat oven to 325°F. Heat taco shells in oven as directed on box.
2. Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, place chicken. Sprinkle with taco seasoning mix; toss gently to coat. Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes or until hot. Stir in 1/2 cup dressing.
3. Spoon warm chicken mixture into heated taco shells. Top with lettuce, tomato, cheese and onions. Drizzle with salsa and additional dressing.

Tips:
Instead of rotisserie chicken, use any diced cooked chicken.
Offer additional taco toppings such as olives and sour cream.
