The new recipe that I will be reviewing this week is Chicken Ranch Tacos. These were pretty good. You could taste the ranch dressing a little, but I felt it made the taste of the taco seasoning more prominent. I actually only used half of the packet of seasoning (that’s what I normally use for a pound of burger) yet it was a bit too strong for me. Next time I want to use the same amount, but use more chicken. Three cups of chicken was hardly enough for me to get two meals out of it. Now for the chicken I used the precooked chicken cubes from Tyson that you can buy in the freezer section. It’s a bit more expensive, but it saved me a lot of time. When you a busy, single, work from home mom time is very important! I don’t know if this will really go on my main rotation menu, but I certainly will make it again. It is a nice change to regular tacos.
