This recipe for chicken ranch tacos is grilled chicken with bacon, homemade ranch sauce, cheese and fresh vegetables, all stuffed inside warm flour tortillas. A family friendly meal that’s simple to make and fun to eat!
My family is a little bit taco obsessed, if dinner is served inside a tortillas they’re likely to eat it. These chicken ranch tacos combine some of our favorite flavors to make a fun and easy dinner – it’s almost like a chicken club sandwich in taco form! Best of all, you can prepare almost all of the components in advance, and then when it’s dinner time it’ll only take minutes to assemble everything. Or you can put out all the ingredients for a fun taco bar and let your family make their own creations.
These chicken ranch tacos start with bite sized pieces of chicken – you can use leftover chicken, rotisserie chicken, or grilled chicken like I did here. Lately I’ve been grilling up a big batch of chicken at the beginning of the week, it’s been super convenient to have on hand for lunch salads or dinners like these tacos. The chicken is layered in tortillas with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese and homemade ranch sauce. I like to use my homemade ranch powder to flavor the sauce, but store bought ranch powder will work just as well. You can also just use a bottle of ranch dressing if you’re pressed for time!
While clearly there’s nothing Mexican about these chicken ranch tacos, they’re a fun way to serve up some familiar (and family friendly!) flavors.
