Shredded Chicken Ranch Tacos

Sometimes tacos get old and boring.  One way to spice that up tacos is to get creative.  Thinking out side of the box why not mix ranch and taco seasoning?  Here is a great way to to just that shredded chicken ranch tacos.  Plus since this is a crock pot meal it is one you can get started and come back in a few hours to a meal that is done and ready to eat.





2 Lbs Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast

1 Packet of Ranch Dressing Mix

1 Packet of Taco Seasoning

Chicken bouillon or Chicken Stock

Wash and put the chicken in the crock pot.  Dump the ranch and taco packets in.  Drop one bouillon cube in.  Add 1-1.5 cups of water.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours or until done.  When done the chicken will shred very easily.  Shred with spatula and fork.  Serve on your favorite taco shells.  We like to use fold-its instead of tortillas.

Brown the lean brown beef.  Drain any fat, of course  you are using LEAN beef so there should not be much to drain.  Add the taco seasoning and water per packet instructions.  Return to low heat and allow to simmer.  Remove from heat.  Wash peppers and core removing the seeds.  Stuff peppers with cheddar cheese, taco meat, sour cream and your favorite condiments.  Dunzo!
