Not only is this a different spin on your traditional taco, it's also easy, quick, and affordable. Not to mention delicious!
What You'll Need:
3 cups (24 oz) Cooked Chicken
1 packet of Taco Seasoning
1/2 cup Ranch Dressing
Tortillas (instructions on how to make your own golden taco shells are below!)
Your Choice of Toppings -- We Used:
Pico de Gallo
Add cooked chicken to a large skillet and allow it to warm on medium-high heat.
Once the chicken has heated up, add taco seasoning. Stir to coat, and allow chicken to cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
Add Ranch Dressing and stir. Allow chicken to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Optional Step: Fried TortillasIf you've never made your own taco shells by frying your tortillas, you've been making your tacos all wrong! I've always felt like store bought taco shells are too crunchy and fall apart as soon as you take the first bite, and using soft tortillas doesn't provide enough of a textural contrast. Fried tortillas offer just the right balance of crunch. Here's here how to make them:
After allowing your fryer to heat up, drop one flour tortilla into the oil.
Immediately place a metal spatula in the center and press the tortilla deep into the oil. Hold in place until golden brown and remove onto paper towels to allow the oil to absorb.
And voilà! The perfect crispy taco shell.
